Bio 

I teach computer and electrical engineering, focusing on digital design and embedded systems. I have experience with SystemVerilog and VHDL on FPGAs, including creating a RISC-V core, using a MicroBlaze custom core, and programming the resulting softcore CPUs in C and assembly. I also have bare metal programming experience with AVR, PIC, Freescale, TI, and STM32 MCUs including ARM Cortex Mx. 

My current research focus is in embedded systems security with an emphasis on hardware encryption accelerators. I am active in engineering education research, desiring to bring the best educational experience to everyone. I strive to be an ally and advocate for everyone who is interested and passionate about engineering. I also have experience in micro/nano electronics with carbon nanotubes, including clean room and SI lithography. 

My teaching philosophy is to provide students with all of the resources they need to succeed and then challenge them to achieve more than they thought they could do. I abhor slide decks, prefer using a whiteboard with multicolor markers, and make heavy use of the Socratic method of asking questions in class
