I am an engineer by profession who worked in private sector for many years. My Bachelor degree is in Civil Engineering, Masters in Assistive Technology with focus on Accessibility, and I am currently working on my PHD in Engineering and Applied Mathematics with focus on Finite Element Analysis and Structural Topology Optimization.

I am a National Science Foundation Alumnus and ANSI standard committee member with experience in transportation of people with mobility impairment through public transportation. Among projects I have been working are:

  • Boeing Simulation lab (Cal state Long Beach) 
  • Intelligent Stage, a smart environment helping the study of  automation and its effect on aging (Cal state Long Beach)
  • Hybrid aircraft seat and the process of crashworthiness certification through simulation (Cal state Long Beach-Claremont Graduate University)

I have been teaching in Cypress College, Moorpark College and California State University Long Beach. My Goal is to help you finding your passion in engineering and prepare you for a smooth transition to the engineering discipline of your choice.


Recommended Course


This is an advanced course in CAD using Solidworks which is one of the most recognizable engineering software within the industry and the software of choice in academia. Solidworks is required for most of engineering desciplines such as Mechanical, Aerospace, Biomedical etc.  At end of the class, the students will take a certification exam and upon successful pass receive CSWA certificate issued by Solidworks joining over 220,000 certified CAD professionals.


Statics is the study of methods for quantifying the forces that act on bodies at rest under equilibrium. Statics is an essential prerequisite for many branches of engineering, such as mechanical, civil, aeronautical, and bioengineering.
