Daniel T. Kawano, is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana. He received his B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in 2006. He obtained his M.S. (2008) and Ph.D. (2011) degrees in Mechanical Engineering, with a focus in dynamical systems, from the University of California, Berkeley. Daniel currently teaches primarily undergraduate courses in vibration, programming, dynamics, and system dynamics. His research and academic interests include modeling, analysis, simulation, and testing of dynamical systems; design of dynamic structures; linear vibratory theory and its applications; numerical solution of differential and differential-algebraic equations; and pedagogy in engineering education. Daniel serves as the faculty advisor for Rose-Hulman's Formula SAE competition team, Rose Grand Prix Engineering. In his spare time, Daniel enjoys reading, listening to music, shooting sports, and spending time outdoors.
