Interests:

My professional interests are in the areas of analog and digital circuit design with applications to instrumentation and machine control. I have begun looking into short distance wireless communication systems appropriate for wireless sensing and control applications.

 

My hobbies include grandchildren, model railroading, racquetball, and macro-gardening (landscaping and keeping the weeds down on a part of our 35-acre farm).
