I adore teaching a lot, and perceive teaching engineering as a personal calling. It is important to me that I contribute to the education of a broad cross-section of the population. I also want to be able to take on long term outreach research projects. Over the next five or ten years, I would like to become more involved in teacher education, although right now I want to keep my focus on teaching and research. For these reasons, my goal is to find a long-term position at a public reputed university that discerns and values both teaching and research as core parts of its vision and mission.
