“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think
critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education."

Martin Luther King, Jr.

## Professional Experience

Over the last 30 years, I have been involved in the subject of mathematics to model engineering and physics systems, as a lecturer and facilitator. I have been involved in several projects where mathematics was applied to solve problems in physics and engineering such as antennas and waveguides.

I taught Pre calculus, calculus, applied mathematics, Eletromagnetic wave theory, communication systems.

Research works: Analytical and numerical methods/computing applied to problems related to wave proapgation and such as antennas and waveguides.

I believe that a student on any math learner needs to better understand mathematical concepts and objects which leads to a deeper understanding of these objects which in turn leads to better problem solving and applications.
