A graduate of the U of A in 1984 and 1987, I am excited to be a part of the ECE Department. My goal is to give back to the place that gave so much to me, and especially to help undergraduates students. A recent focus has been on space-based technology and innovation with special emphasis on involvement with AlbertaSat(.ca).


I collaborate with colleagues on a range of projects and topics, but do not conduct independent research. My current position does not allow me to supervise graduate students or post-docs. All email applications for such positions will be ignored.


The focus of my teaching is to provide high-quality, experience-based instruction that relates theory and knowledge to industry. My career has been primarily R&D with a focus on transitioning low Technology Readiness Level technologies to market.


ECE 492 - Computer Engineering Design Project

Design of microprocessor systems, input/output systems, programmable timers, address decoding and interrupt circuitry. This course has a major laboratory component and requires the design and implementation of a microprocessor-based system. Prerequisites: ECE 315 or CMPE 401, and ECE 410 or CMPE 480. Credit may be obtained in only one of CMPE 450, 490, or ECE 492.
