About Jack Leifer

I have been at Trinity University since the fall of 2005. Prior to my arrival at Trinity, I taught at two undergraduate-oriented engineering programs: University of South Carolina - Aiken, and the University of Kentucky/Extended Programs at Paducah. I also taught in the mathematics department at Austin Community College while pursuing my Ph.D.
My research areas involve applications of mechanics and non-contact measurement (using videogrammetry). Current projects include (1) three-dimensional acceleration measurement using videogrammetry; (2) passive vibration reduction of a string trimmer (weed whacker); and (3) force reconstruction of vehicle collisions based on damage photographs. I enjoy including undergraduates in my research projects, and have had a number of summer research students funded by HHMI, McNair and NSF/Noyce here at Trinity.
