I greatly enjoy being part of the faculty at CSULA. I have tri-fold interest in teaching well, in continuing my research that contributes to the knowledge of the field of Mechanical Engineering, and in enhancing the quality of life for students and faculty here at CSULA. I have over seven years of industrial experience in fluid flow, specifically in flow meter design and research, and in medical ventilator design and research. I am a Registered Mechanical Professional Engineer and have earned two United States patents for my industrial designs.
I joined CSULA as an Assistant Professor during Winter Quarter, 1999, was promoted to Associate Professor in Fall of 2002, and was promoted to Professor in Fall of 2006. I have served as a lecturer at both California State University Los Angeles and University of California, Irvine. I am committed to students mastering the course content and being able to apply it in a variety of settings. This commitment is reflected in my course activities, which emphasize active learning and frequent checks for understanding. I am interested in broadening the interest in Mechanical Engineering (specifically fluid/thermal sciences), and I work hard to encourage the success of students in Engineering.
My research interests are in aerodynamics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, and combustion. Currently, I am conducting research that addresses both fundamental and practical engineering topics and applications in combustion and aerodynamics.
