Phillip Cornwell currently teaches at the United States Air Force Academy and is an Emeritus Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1989 and his present interests include structural dynamics, structural health monitoring, and undergraduate engineering education. Dr. Cornwell has received an SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award in 1992, and the Dean’s Outstanding Teacher award at Rose-Hulman in 2000 and the Rose-Hulman Board of Trustee’s Outstanding Scholar Award in 2001. He was one of the developers of the Rose-Hulman Sophomore Engineering Curriculum, the Dynamics Concept Inventory, and he is a co-author of Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Dynamics, by Beer, Johnston, Cornwell, and Self. In 2019 Dr. Cornwell received the Archie Higdon Distinguished Educator Award from the Mechanics Division of ASEE.
Simon Jones is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. He received his Ph.D. from Cambridge University in 2010 and his present teaching and research interests include finite element analysis, vibration and wave propagation, and reduced-order numerical modeling.
Daniel Kawano is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, IN. He received his B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. He obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering, with a focus in dynamical systems, from the University of California, Berkeley. His interests include decoupling algorithms for second-order linear systems, rigid-body dynamics, and undergraduate engineering education. Dr. Kawano is the recipient of the 2016 Outstanding New Mechanics Educator Award from the Mechanics Division of the American Society for Engineering Education.
