I spent 15 years working with materials testing in the Center for Flexible Packaging (CEFPACK) right here on campus prior to accepting a teaching position in 2017. I love teaching our undergraduate students and helping recruit new students to our program. I have many industry contacts who I bring into the classroom to give students a feel for the real issues in the diverse packaging industry.
