CURRENT RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am looking to work with new students, particularly graduate students in the Civil Systems Program (CEE), the Masters of Systems Engineering Program (MSSE at ISR) and the Applied Math Program.


RECENT RESEARCH PROJECTS

  • PaladinRM Software for Visualization and Management of System Requirements ( pdf ). [new]"
    Also see PaladinRM Tutorial ( pdf ), June 2005.
  • Aladdin : A Computational Toolkit for Engineering Matrix and Finite Element Analysis.
  • Java-Enabled Diagram Technology . We worked on this project during the 2001-2003 timeframe, then it died, and now it's coming back to life again.
