About

David earned his Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering at the Pennsylvania State University in 2007, graduating with highest distinction. Currently, he works with Prof. Kon-Well Wang in the department of mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan in the Structural Dynamics and Controls Laboratory. David currently serves as Laboratory Manager. David's work is in creating high stiffness, high damping, passively adaptive structures using concepts from periodic structures and bistable systems. In the recent past, David has worked on nonlinear structural health monitoring and crack localization in structures, as well as dynamics, stability, and vibration analysis of variable speed rotorcraft powertrain systems. These projects allow him to explore his research interests, which include damage detection and structural health monitoring and also nonlinear dynamics and vibration.
