"My teaching is focused in the area of structural engineering and the courses that I teach include Bridge Engineering, Timber Design, Structural Analysis I, Solid Mechanics, Statics, Computer Tools for Civil Engineering, and Introduction to Engineering. My academic experience includes eight years at the Asian Institute of Technology in Thailand, where I taught graduate courses in structural engineering and advised master and doctoral degree candidates. I am from western Pennsylvania so I am a big Steelers fan (not always popular around here), and I enjoyed playing football during my undergraduate studies at Carnegie Mellon. I enjoy golfing, and if you visit Zollner Golf Course during the summer there is a good chance that you will see me. I also enjoy playing guitar, both real and Guitar Hero, so if you like Guitar Hero maybe we can have a go sometime. My family includes my wife, Yanawan, and four children: Ice, Aidan, Alex and Andrew. They keep me pretty busy when I’m away from Trine, and maybe you’ll see me on campus with them from time to time. They love coming for dinner at Whitney Commons. All you can eat ice cream!
