Background:

I retired as a Professor of Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maryland/College Park in July 1998 and I was subsequently appointed to the position of Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering. 

I am currently living in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and I am still active in Mechanical Engineering Consulting.  I was previously the president of FARE, Inc. an engineering company which I founded in 1988.   You can learn more by visiting: http://www.fareinc.com.
