Ph.D. degree, Princeton University, October 1989, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Princeton, NJ.

My thesis investigated the dynamic characteristics of periodic structures which have parametric uncertainties that would be expected in a realistic engineering structure. In particular, the phenomenon of mode localization in cyclic structures such as large space reflectors was examined. My graduate course work emphasized dynamics, structural dynamics, numerical methods, applied mathematics, and controls.
