I currently chair the National Center for Optics and Photonics National Visiting Committee (NVC) in Waco, TX; the Convergence Technology Center NVC in the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex; and the Regional Center for Semiconductor and Nanotechnology Education NVC at Hudson Valley Community College in New York.
I also co-chair the MATEC Networks NVC in Phoenix, AZ and co-chair the Boston Advanced Technological Education Center NVC at UMass Boston.
In addition, I sit on the NVCs for the Manufacturing and Engineering Technologies Education Clearinghouse (METEC) at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio and the National Center for Nanotechnology Applications and Career Knowledge (NACK) at Penn State.
In 2001 I was selected as one of the top 15 technology faculty in the United States by Microsoft and the American Association of Community Colleges and in 2004 was selected as the Massachusetts Network and Communications Council Workforce Leader of the year.
I am in the process of posting early blog entries (from a homegrown platform I used to use) dating back to May 2005 on this page.
