Organizationally speaking, I was (until my retirement as of July 2013), a member of
SETAPP, the School of Engineering
Design, Technology, and Professional Programs, which is part of
the College of Engineering
at the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) .
Physically, I am located at the Mont Alto
Campus of Penn State University. If you need directions,

Over the years I have taught quite a few courses in
different areas, all
of which have a web presence :
||Diplom Engineur||1967||Technical University in Munich, Germany|
||Ph.D.||1989||Cornell University, NY|
In engineering, undergraduate research is conducted by freshmen and
sophmore students and is tailored to the abilities of the individual
student. At times a group of students conducts research or tackles design
projects, mostly under the auspices of the local
Students may feel free to bring their own proposals to me and I will try to
accomodate to the best of my abilities.
My personal life
Sure I have one. For quite a few years we had three different nationalities
in my family. My wife Jane (who is a full-fledged registered nurse) and
youngest son Matthew were Americans, my two oldest sons Jan and Eric were
citizen of India and I was a citizen of Germany. We have solidified the
situation though and are now all Americans living in tiny Chambersburg,
PA, respectively going to College. The youngest, Matthew, is now in his
last semester studying
the Fine Arts and is in the process of applying for graduate school.
Jan just finished his undergraduate studies and is now in graduate school
in Aerospace Engineering while Eric is working for a company designing web pages for commercial
There is not much time for hobbies.
But I used to run/jog for more than 40 years now
( marathon in 1993, 1996, 2000 ) but my knees are slowly giving out so
I switched over to bicycling and hiking the
Appalachian Trail. I also have
a nice vegetable/fruit garden and enjoy fixing/building everything around
our house and cars and trying to live green as much as possible.
