“The quest for a bright future for my children and grandchildren.”
John Hall is a professor at the University at Buffalo. He graduated from the Missouri University of Science and Technology with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. He worked 20 years in the automotive, semiconductor and power generation industries. He holds a professional engineering license. Dr. Hall obtained his MS and PhD in Mechanical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. He is recognized as a General Motors Scholar, ASME International Gas Turbine Institute Scholar, and Cockrell College of Engineering Fellow. His research concentrates on design methodologies and novel control techniques that promote sustainable systems. A critical element of the studies is simulation modeling of time-dependent multidisciplinary phenomena. Key aspects of the work are system adaptability, maintenance, reliability, and lifecycle analysis. Dr. Hall is interested in the applied area of renewable energy systems. He has developed innovative design methods that promote the productivity and longevity of wind turbines. His work has been published in ASME journals and recognized with distinction at the International Design Engineering Technical Conferences.
