I’m currently a Senior Research Scholar (LML) at the University of Cambridge, UK where I am conducting research on computational data science, automatic patent search algorithm development, and empirical IP research. I am also a tenured Full Professor of Electrical Engineering in the College of Engineering, Technology & Management (ETM) 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.
