I have been an Associate Professor at SPSU since 2010 in the Mechanical Engineering program, within the Systems & Mechanical Engineering Department. I enjoy teaching college engineering students at all levels, especially in the mechanics courses. Currently I am developing a Dynamics Laboratory where ME 4501 - Vibrations & Controls Lab - is being offered fall semester 2012 for the first time.
Another area I teach is the 2-semester senior design sequence - ME 4201 and ME 4202. I use my years of industrial experience at General Motors and Lucent Technologies to provide a real-world perspective into my teaching. Our senior students work in small teams to solve mechanical engineering design problems – many provided by our industrial partners.
My current research is in vuvuzela noise, environmental noise, and tire/pavement interaction noise.
I am a member of the Georgia Pavement Research Center (GPRC), Institute for Noise Control Engineering (INCE), Acoustical Society of America (ASA), and American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).

Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 678-915-6855 if you have consulting or research needs in noise measurement & control, mechanics in general, or have a real-world mechanical engineering design project that might be appropriate for our senior engineering students..
