He is responsible for the planning and delivery of the Master’s programwhich grew from 15 students in the first year to over 200 students in four years.

He teaches a variety of courses related to energy efficiency and renewable energy generation. He led the design and development of a new energy management lab, and launched the Cleantech Corner video series.  
In 2020, he challenged his daughter to write a novel for a homeschool project, agreeing to write a book at the same time. Plan for a Turbulent Future came out of this project.

The aim of the book was to develop and present a Personal Resilience Framework that readers can use to make themselves, their families and their communities more resilient.
