Based in the Electrical Engineering Department, he founded the Center for Sustainable Engineering, Art and Architecture Materials, and Manufacturing and Minimalism (SEA2M3) to bring students from the three schools together to develop sustainable solutions to the problems facing those in remote regions of the developing world.
