I am a professor in the Engineering Science and Mechanics department at Penn State University. This blog in no way represents Penn State or my role there. It is entirely my personal thoughts and musings.
I am a confirmed Apple aficionado and I love my MacBook Pro with Retina display, iPhone 5, and iPad mini with Retina display.
I dabble in photography with my Nikon 300S.
I love long hikes.
I love listening to music — mostly classical (Bach, Chopin, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, and many more) and Jazz (50s and 60s), but I also really enjoy Brandi Carlile, Amy Macdonald, KT Tunstall, Coldplay, Lily Allen, Sheryl Crow, Dean Martin, and more more artists.
I hate heat and high dew points. I actually love winter in the Northeast. The allure of Florida eludes me.
