Welcome!!! This page contains some information about me and some stuff related to my research and teaching that I have accumulated over the years. I am now officially a retired Emeritus Professor, but I have decided to continue to make some of my prior educational and research materials available for future students and researchers. I hope that some of these resources will be useful to others with similar interests.
Note: It has been over a decade since I have fully updated this site. However, in Jan. 2020, I decided to give this website a complete facelift and to make a lot of the "really good stuff" that I have generated over the years more readily available to interested users. Thus, this site is currently under construction!!! Hopefully, over the next several months, it will start to take on its final form and become a useful resource for future interested students and nuclear professionals...
My specialty is computational nuclear reactor physics, but I also have taught a variety of general engineering, numerical computing, and mathematics courses. The Course Material link contains a bunch of stuff associated with many of the courses that I taught in my 30+ years at UMass-Lowell. Since I used Matlab quite extensively in all my courses, a series of sample Matlab files are also available for most of the courses. Some of these were used for teaching Matlab fundamentals, for illustrating a variety of course concepts, and for demonstrating practical engineering applications within the individual courses -- Enjoy!!!
For those of you interested in the Nuclear Engineering field and, in particular, computational nuclear reactor physics, you might also find some interesting modeling and application-oriented information within the Research Work link. When available, I have made full versions of many of my papers and reports accessible in pdf format. You are welcome to use these resources as needed and, if you find these useful, please provide appropriate references in your work.
Finally, the Misc. Goodies link contains a variety of things that didn't seem to fit anywhere else. Check it out -- there may be something of interest here...
