Without question, the best teacher I’ve had yet at MIT. Thank you for making learning seem so effortless. Your lectures were a pleasure every day, your attention to detail really impressive, and your organization … well, I just wish that every teacher I’ve ever had was as precise and organized as you are.” Another said, “In addition to making the material compelling in the traditional classroom and lab settings, he has carefully put together a series of relevant field trips for the class. These trips are essential for connecting the work done in CEE to that done in the real world.”
