I’m currently a Visiting Professor at the University of Cambridge (AY2015/17) where I am conducting legal research as a Visiting Scholar at the Center for IP & Information Law (CIPIL) and the Centre for Law, Medicine, and Life Sciences (LML). I am also a tenured Full Professor of Electrical Engineering in the EERE Department at the Oregon Institute of Technology (Oregon Tech). I have taught most of the undergraduate courses in the BS in Electrical Engineering program at Oregon Tech, as well as MS & PhD courses in Signal Processing, Mathematical Methods, Computational Statistics, Biomedical Engineering (BSP), Research Methods, Intellectual Property, Patent Law, and Strategy & Commercialization at several universities in the US and Europe.
Over the last 10 years I have served in various university leadership roles including Program Director, Department Chair, Director of Tech Transfer, Vice President for Research, and Associate Provost. While these leadership service opportunities have enabled me to contribute to the university by designing and launching new academic programs, attracting external funding, and serving as the founding Vice President for the Oregon Tech Wilsonville Campus, I am still most passionate about teaching. The activities I enjoy the most are being in the classroom and working with students in meaningful applied research and innovation projects.
