Profile Summary

My graduate work focused on RF engineering and applied electromagnetics. Specifically, my thesis was on the experimental realization of electrically small transmitting antennas at frequencies in the HF band and lower. After graduating with a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I worked as a senior R&D electrical engineer at Sandia National Laboratories. In my current role at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, my primary focus is teaching circuits and electromagnetics at the undergraduate and graduate level. I love to make complex ideas in electrical engineering intuitive and relevant to everyday life. I strive to emphasize hands-on learning in the courses that I teach, and desire to have the largest impact on my students that I can.
