About Research: Pioneered and developed novel experimental technologies (optical and radioscopic). Extended research field (fluid mechanics/heat transfer/transport phenomena/microgravity science/energy systems, materials science (processing crystals (III-V: InSb), structural alloys (AlCu, AlSn, GaIn, NiAl), and composite materials. Photovoltaics, solar thermal, and hydrogen as space energy resources. Recently focusing on systems engineering.
University Professor since 1987. Courses taught: experimental fluid mechanics, materials science, composite materials, systems engineering and design, solar and hydrogen energy systems, electric vehicles design. Development of a hands-on curriculum for soph
