Profile Summary

I have over 20 years of R&D and Product Development experience as well as over 15 years of teaching experience at multiple Universities at both the undergraduate and graduate level. I bring a balanced, systematic approach to problem solving and have efficiently delivered innovative, producible solutions to the industrial, aerospace and alternative energy fields and hold 11 U.S. patents and several patents pending.  My primary interests are the design, simulation, modeling and controls development of power conversion systems for alternative energy (wind, solar PV, fuel cells) and industrial (HVAC, elevator, traction) applications. 

I have a wide range of industrial experience gained through work for:

  • United Technologies (UTRC, Hamilton Sundstrand, UTC Power)
  • Vestas Technology R&D
  • AMSC
