About Me

I am a Lecturer in the School of Computing at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, a Computer Engineer, and recently retired U.S Air Force Major(you can find my CV here). My research interests include robotics, embedded systems, 3D modeling, and simulation design. My areas of specialization include VLSI Systems, Computer Architecture, Embedded Systems, Advanced Digital Design.

I enjoy spending time with my family, computers/robotics, watching movies, woodworking, getting outside. I am married to Britney Falkinburg who is an elementary school counselor at Springville Elementary in Omaha.

If you want to meet with me, you can call my office or send me an e-mail if you are in one of my classes. If you are not in one of my classes, you should email me first. If you want to know more about me...Here is an article about me in the CSE Bits & Bytes newsletter

Senior Design Sponsor 2021-2022

I have been a Tribe Lead for two years and have noticed the fact that many of our senior design projects are focused on software and most do not provide any focus on hardware or embedded systems projects. For the 2021-2022 academic year I decided to sponsor a couple of senior design projects to provide a project with more of computer engineering or embedded computing focus. I have been tribe lead for many senior design projects that were creating a VR capability or an Android/Apple app capability. Both of my project proposals were accepted and were very successful.

The Husker Scope project is an all-in-one cross platform (iOS, Android, and Web App) application that implements a Dual Channel Function Generator and Oscilloscope functionality for use within the CSCE 436 - Advanced Embedded Systems course. They were able to create a beta version for students to use in the spring 2022.

Husker Scope Project Description

The Husker STEM VR project is a STEM VR outreach/recruitment app being built for the Oculus Quest. Students are building a virtual reality Oculus Quest app for UNL's School of Computing and College of Engineering to encourage STEM outreach. This app will help to make learning fun by creating a virtual reality app designed to create an engaging learning environment. Additionally, we can promote more diversity in STEM by creating an educational environment that promotes inclusiveness.
