Teaching

Completed undergraduate student projects:

I have been involved in the teaching of several undergraduate and graduate courses. I am also involved in the supervision and grading of undergraduate projects as part of Mech-463N Mechanical Engineering Project (formerly Mechanical Laboratory II). I have been involved in the supervision of undergraduate projects as part of Mech-495, 496 Design III and IV (formerly Design II and III).
