I have mentored many students in various research projects. Many of these students went to earn graduate degrees. Some co-authored technical papers with me. I try to strike a balance between guiding students working with me and giving them intellectual freedom to try untested approaches.


Overview of current research projects:

Optimization Algorithms and their Applications to Mechanical Engineering Design
Finite Element Analysis of Mechanical Components and Systems
Dynamic Analysis and Control of Mechanical Systems with Emphasis on Flexible Robots
Analysis and Design of Robots and Mechanisms
Biomedical applications of mechanical design
Characterization of biomaterials
Shock Transmission
Characterization of Material Properties under Impact Loading.
Fuzzy Logic Control Applications.
