Additional Information

  • Exceptionally seasoned and dedicated Electrical Engineering Professor with a strong record in research, teaching, and administration. Adept at explaining highly complex engineering theories and practices in a clear and accessible manner to a variety of professional and non-professional audiences. Committed to offering interested students my full attention and expertise to help further their academic and professional goals. As young researcher I want to become principal investigator to take on senior responsibilities like mentoring, grant writing, and teaching. I am very much interested in research activities like survey, fabrication, waste to energy and modifications.
