Since joining Lakehead University as a faculty member, I have taught a number of courses in Mechanical Engineering including, for example, Statics, Dynamics I, Dynamics II, Machine Design, Mechanical Engineering Design I, Mechanical Engineering Design II, etc. At the graduate level, I have taught Nonlinear Vibrations and Chaos, and Langrangian Mechanics.
In addition, I have supervised degree projects (EMEC 4969) and technology projects (EMEC 2939) as well.
My research interests have evolved over the years, starting with finite element methods, to composite materials; nonlinear dynamics; and computational (and/or numerical) modeling of dynamic systems. Currently I am focused on biomechanics, bio-composites and on developing products to improve the quality of lives.
In my spare time, I volunteer for the engineering profession.
