Job Objective:  A part time consulting/teaching position in electrical engineering in the general areas of dynamic systems, simulation, system control, digital control, circuits, electronics, electric power systems, and electromagnetics. 

Present Location:  Venice / Los Angeles, CA.

Education:  Ph.D. in electrical engineering, Northwestern University, 1966.


  • Consultant:  (A partial list follows.)
    • David Taylor Research Center in Annapolis, MD (US Navy.)  Research in the area of electromagnetic launchers.  Two launchers were actually constructed and tested.  A third very large launcher was completely designed (for a feasibility study.)  [1, 2]
    • Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, DC.  Design of a gimbal controller for a special airborne radar. [3]
    • Pulse Electronics, Germantown, MD.  Designed a miniature air driven motor.  This work was of a proprietary nature hence there are no publications.  The resulting motor was of a very new and innovative design.
    • Eastalco, Frederick, MD.  Research on nondestructive testing of anodes used in the production of aluminum.  This resulted in an international patent (# 5,473,248) issued on December 5, 1995 "Method and Apparatus for Non-Destructive Detecting Flaws in a Carbon Anode." [4]
  • Educator:  (University of Maryland, College Park, Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering.  Over thirty publications and a list of courses taught will be provided upon request.)
    • 1998—Present:  Professor Emeritus.
    • 1987—1998:  Professor.
    • 1987—1996:  Associate Chairman of the Dept., in charge of Graduate Education.
    • 1972—1980:  Director of Undergraduate Education in the Dept.
    • 1970—1987:  Associate Professor.
    • 1967—1970:  Assistant Professor.

Member:  IEEE, Sigma Xi, Eta Kappa Nu, Tau Beta Pi.

Sponsored Research:  Over $3,900,000 in research funds over a period of nearly thirty years.

Hobbies and Interests:  Woodworking, bicycling, birding, gardening, construction.
