Andrew G. Klein is an associate professor at Western Washington University (WWU), having joined in 2014 with a joint appointment to the department of Engineering and Design (Electrical Engineering Program) and the graduate faculty of Computer Science. He received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Cornell University, and the M.S. degree in electrical engineering and computer sciences from the University of California, Berkeley. He then worked for awhile at several Silicon Valley startup companies before returning to Cornell to pursue a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering. Prior to his arrival at WWU, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Supélec/LSS near Paris, France, and was an assistant professor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Kirsten Basinet has a B.S. in electrical engineering, and is now a graduate student pursuing M.S. in the Computer Science. She is currently investigating how game-playing can be used in the classroom to improve engineering education. In her free time, she enjoys being involved with college radio and working on a NIST time-receiving Arduino shield.
Harley Fernandez is a senior pursuing a major in Electrical Engineering and a minor in mathematics. He is also the current Vice Chair of the Western Washington University Marine Technology Club. During his free time he enjoy playing video games and experiencing the local culture. He is excited about joining the ASPECT research group and seeing the outcome of the educational research and hopefully making a contribution to help future students.
Kevin Richardson is a senior in Electrical Engineering and is pursuing a minor in Mathematics. As a research assistant, he is aiding in the study of how gaming and tinkering effect the electrical engineering educational setting. He is also the Vice President of the WWU chapter of IEEE-HKN and member of the Marine Technology Club at WWU. In his free time he enjoys being outdoors, playing the drums, and being immersed in the Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings universes.
Tim Christman is a senior in the Electrical Engineering program and is pursuing a minor in Energy Sciences. He is researching the implementation of a time-stamp-free synchronization algorithm. His interests include current events, minimalist footwear, and strategy games.
Skye Kowalski is an Electrical Engineering student at Western Washington University. In addition to pursuing her B.S. in engineering, she is aiming to earn a minor in Computer Systems. She is very excited to be working on research for clock synchronization algorithms for future technologies. In the future, she hopes to continue her education and earn a M.S. and Ph.D in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. In her free time, she enjoys listening to music, talking with her friends, and playing real time strategy games like Starcraft II.
