I helped to conduct comprehensive field evaluations for research projects involving highway construction work practices and safety hazards, specifically the hazard of highway construction workers being injured or killed by construction vehicles or equipment.
I also collected and digitized Construction Equipment Visibility (Blind Areas) diagrams of a variety of constuction equipment. These diagrams were then posted onto a NIOSH webpage for public access, https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/highwayworkzones/bad/imagelookup.html.
"I wish every engineering professor was like this, very straight-forward, easy to understand,
and gave a good conceptual explanation to things."
- MAE 433 Student -
"All material was presented in a clear manner and was easily understood. Examples always
reinforced newly presented material."
- MAE 331 Student -
"Dr. Griffin is an awesome professor!! He connects very well with all of his students while
maintaining a structured and organized class."
- MAE 433 Student -
"He was such a great teacher! He was so helpful and helped me realize why I wanted to be an engineer!"
- MAE 215 Student -
"He did a good job explaining the concepts during lecture, and was easy to understand and follow. He was
very friendly and approachable if anyone needed help outside of class. He did his best to make sure
that students understood the material. Overall, a very good professor."
