After earning my doctorate, I worked for Compressor Controls Corporation in Des Moines, Iowa. I then taught thermal systems courses at Iowa State University as an adjunct professor.  After that, I became involved in all aspects of patent prosecution and technical consulting at a law firm in Des Moines.

I have been at Trine University since fall of 2006, teaching courses in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, measurements and gas turbines. I was awarded the Steve and Mary Yacynch McKetta Excellence in Teaching Award in Engineering the first year I was eligible.

During the summer I work as a patent consultant. As we heat our home with wood, I cut most of that during the summer from our own timber. I enjoy vegetable gardening. Spending time with my family is also very important to me.
