As part of the trinity of being a professor, I believe that service is an integral part of any profession. I enjoy service that is behind the scenes and at the same time has a quiet service leadership component.

UTP Malaysia Fulbright Picture With Students of Computational Methods CourseThe role of the connected world has helped me do this in more ways than one. From heading a search committee at the departmental level to answering questions from the Numerical-Methods-YouTube-channel subscribers, from being a reluctant keynote speaker at an education conference to facilitating an engineering education workshop, each contribution adds up synergistically in its own way.
