Short Bio

I am a mechanical engineer and an engineering educator with years and tons of research and teaching experience, including in industry and academia areas, I have taught many undergraduate and graduate courses, and I also worked as the course coordinator, ME laboratory instructor, and served assessment committee for years.

I care about your success far more than you can imagine. Every improvement in your learning progress is a big award for me.

Open communication is what I seek from my students and colleagues.

I am more than happy to share with students about my teaching philosophy and thoughts about career choices, etc. Trust me, there were so many students who benefited from their conversations with me, even though only a small portion of them were willing to let me know, it is still a huge number, let along those who didn't tell me.

Academic Focus

Renewable energy, Enhanced heat transfer, Combustion/Gasification/Pyrolysis, Undergraduate engineering teaching and learning, Cognitive and metacognitive intervention, Novice and expert, etc.
