New position at Yale University!

This fall semester, I was hired by Yale as a lecturer and research scientist. Lecturer positions at Yale are considered non-ladder faculty, unlike most universities where they are considered staff. My appointment as research scientist makes me eligible to pursue my own research program as a principle investigator.

I am currently creating a brand new course at Yale called “Machine Elements and Manufacturing Processes”. The course integrates key concepts from machine design with surveys of a wide range of machine elements and manufacturing processes. The project for the course is for students to build a 3D printer from scratch, get it running and calibrated, and then either modify it to print an exotic material or machine replacement parts (such as a bracket) using traditional manufacturing methods.

I’m very grateful to the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences for bringing me on!
