My goal as an engineering educator is to help students gain a thorough understanding of engineering principles so that they can apply their knowledge to new problems. It is also my objective to create a comfortable and inclusive learning environment, where students have the opportunity to develop their creative and problem-solving abilities; and to facilitate the development of lifelong learning skills that will prepare students to function effectively in a dynamic, diverse, and global economy.
Teaching and research complement each other. Research opens the door to new knowledge which enriches the classroom experience, whereas the fundamentals taught in the classroom form the foundation of research. I strongly encourage engineering students to get involved in research, internships, and other extracurricular activities to further their technical skills and increase their competitiveness in the job market.
