I stress the use of interdisciplinary ideas in my teaching.  Rather than teaching students to specialize in a narrow area, I try to provide valuable perspective on how ideas relate with concepts students have already seen in other classes.  With these interdisciplinary goals in mind, I have purposely taught courses in two different areas within my department: power electronics, and electric machinery.  I have developed and taught three new courses in the area of electromechanical motion devices.  These are:

ECEN 611                   General Theory of Electromechanical Motion Devices, 3 credits          ECEN 612                   Computer Aided Design of Electromechanical Motion Devices, 4 credits ECEN 442/742         DSP-Based Electromechanical Motion Control, 3 credits
