The ideal mathematician's work is intelligible
only to a small group of specialists, numbering a few dozen or
at most a few hundred. This group has existed only for a few
decades and there is every possibility that it may become
extinct in another few decades. However, the mathematician
regards his work as part of the very structure of the world,
containing truths that are valid forever, from the beginning of
time, even in the most remote corner of the universe.

A great feat of engineering is an object of perpetual interest to people bent on self-destruction.
Dr. Todd A.
his M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering at Marquette
University, working with Dr. Majdalani. His research at
Marquette involved the derivation of approximate and exact
analytical solutions used to describe two-dimensional
time-dependent flows of gases in porous enclosures with various
geometries. While at Marquette, he also worked as a Teaching
Assistant in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial
engineering, where he was responsible for the preparation of
laboratory experiments and the supervision of students while
running those experiments.
