I am currently seeking MSc and PhD students in two areas: (1) Design Engineering Education, and (2) Distributed Intelligent Sensing and Control Systems. The first area is for for students who wish to pursue rigorous research into how undergraduate engineering programs are taught, learned, and practiced. As a member of our research team, you will be conducting fundamental research in engineering education with the goal of facilitating positive change in the way engineering programs are delivered, and in particular, how professional skills are supported and developed through design experiences. The second area is for students who wish to pursue rigorous research into the development of industrial automation systems that are capable of rapidly adapting to change. As a member of our research team, you will be conducting fundamental research into the application of distributed artificial intelligence techniques to automation systems with the goal of developing systems that are more robust, reconfigurable, and efficient.
