Biography
Originally from Kent, CT, I have been teaching full-time at Northeastern University since 2006. Before that, I worked 8 years as a biomechanics engineer/athletic footwear designer for Reebok International and 2 years as a research/development engineer for Haemonetics Corporation. My primary teaching responsibilities are the first-year engineering courses in the College of Engineering, including Engineering Design and Computer Programming with Arduino. I also teach Mechanics of Materials in the Department of Mechanical/Industrial Engineering and I have taught courses in the School of Engineering Technology & the Lowell Institute, including several Renewable Energy courses involving solar thermal, solar photovoltaic, wind turbine, biomass, hydroelectric, geothermal and ocean/wave energy systems. At Northeastern, I have also taught Fluid Mechanics, Measurements & Analysis, Mechanical Design, Dynamics and Stress Analysis and their respective laboratory courses in the Mechanical Engineering Technology program. My research endeavors originated at The University of Iowa with a project studying ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injuries in female Division I collegiate athletes and neuromuscular responses measured by EMG (electromyography) in order to prevent non-contact ACL injuries through neuromuscular training. At Reebok, my work focused on footwear biomechanics research, footwear technology design & development and testing of advanced concepts in athletic footwear and sporting goods. I have been working on my doctorate in education at Northeastern University with a focus on preK-12 STEAM education, the Next Generation Science Standards and designing and implementing professional development to support preK-12 teachers of science, technology and engineering. I am collaborating with Northestern's Center for STEM Education to design, deliver and assess professional development for Massachusetts teachers that is continuous, embedded and on-site to help align their curriculum to the 2016 Massachusetts science, technology and engineering standards. Check out our recent publication! http://asee-ne.org/conferences/aseene/2018/index.php/aseene/aseene2018/paper/viewFile/202/21 I enjoy spending time with my family including golf, tennis, biking, camping and running road races together. I also enjoy teaching STEM and STEAM courses and camps in my community and at Northeastern University, plus exploring math, science and engineering concepts with my family outdoors within the greater Boston area.
