Barry Fussell

Prof. Fussell has been with the ME department at UNH since 1987. His work experience outside the university includes 2 years as a product engineer for the Timken Company, a summer working for the Air Force as a visiting scientist, and a sabbatical semester as a visiting professor at the EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. He currently maintains an active research program and co-directs the Design and Manufacturing Laboratory with Professor Robert Jerard (Design & Manufacturing Lab website).
