Courses

Have taught various courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels at Seton Hall University and here at Kean University.  Undergraduate courses have included Management Information Systems and various Systems Analysis, Design and Implementation classes as well as Production Management and Business Statistics.  Graduate courses include Applied Data Communications, Software Selection, Evaluation & Acquisition, Systems Analysis, Database Design, Office Automation, Operations Management and Simulation.  In the summer of '96, a special topics class on the Internet and World Wide Web was offered.  Student reaction to this class was excellent, and it has been added as a course offered regularly by the MIS program, now expanded to cover e-commerce. 


Research

Initial research work was engineering related in the area of numerical analysis. In particular computer solutions were obtained using Fourier series for cylindrical vessels (using elasticity and shell theories).  Simulation was addressed more recently.  Various articles were published and presented related to the use of computers in class and the use of computer labs as classrooms.  Have more recently addressed the use of the Internet as an effective distance learning tool, and the evolution of networking at an accounting office. 


Interests

Enjoy fencing, swimming, biking and racquetball. Also enjoy using my computer to get work done, play games (like chess, and Bridge on-line) and surf the net.
