My teaching interests are in furniture and wood products design, product development, manufacturing of secondary wood products, computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), robotic manufacturing, and wood composites.
As a member of UBC’s Educational Leadership Stream I am committed to advance and improve my teaching techniques. My goal is to continuously contribute to the development of new techniques and strategies to improve the learning experience in our undergraduate program.
