● Authored two theses; one in relativistic physics of electromagnetism and another in spherical geometry on the subject of electromagnetic propagation. Einstein-Lorentz is a different way of thinking about electric fields from Gauss, Thomson, Maxwell and Heaviside. The Einstein-Lorentz definition of time includes energy, mass, velocity and linear dimension, while others do not. This avoids superfluous complexity and calculation intensity and results in precise, simplified, dimensionally correct answers - more akin to antenna calibration techniques and Ohms law units of measurement with real numbers and geometry. No calculus needed.
Relativity is commonly not included in conventional ABET electrical and electronics engineering curriculum at this time.
The thesis in geometry corrects common misrepresentation of spherical, isotropic radiation - also not yet commonly known.
The combination of the above two yields unprecedented analysis accuracy.
