Dr. John Hall completed his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, where he was recognized as a General Motors Scholar and ASME International Gas Turbine Institute Scholar. He subsequently worked in industry gaining 20 years of combined experience in the power generation, automotive, robotics, and semiconductor fields. Dr. Hall held senior-level positions in design, manufacturing, maintenance, and reliability engineering and is a licensed professional engineer. Following his work in industry, he completed the Master and Doctoral degrees in Mechanical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. During this time he was awarded a Cockrell College of Engineering Fellowship. 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.
