Teaching Activities

For 2014/2015 I am teaching the undergraduate courses:

  • MECH 216 Instrumentation and Measurement Labs
  • MECH 492 Biofluids

Details for these courses are available in the calendar and on Desire2Learn.

I also teach the graduate courses:

In all of my courses I do my best to balance disability and privacy issues against the larger objectives of the course and the university.

I have also posted some teaching materials related to these and other courses.

Research Interests

  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Optical Measurement Techniques
  • Biomechanics

In the Human Mobility Research Centre (HMRC) I am working with other researchers on projects related to image guided surgery, bone quality assessment, and wrist kinematics.
