Current/recent research projects:

I teach professional courses in dynamic measurements, signal processing, industrial noise control and vehicle NVH (Noise/Vibration/Harshness), consult in industrial noise control and vibration measurements with the American machine tool industry. I am experienced in dynamic measurements as applied to noise and vibration problems in mechanisms and structures. Current interest include analysis of vibrational energy flow through structures, incorporating laser doppler vibration measurements.
