David J. Giblin has recently joined the Department of Engineering at Trinity College as Visiting Assistant Professor of Engineering. He graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2002 with a B.S.E. in Mechanical Engineering, and continued at the University of Connecticut to earn his Ph.D. in 2007, specializing in robotic manipulation theories. During his graduate studies, Giblin was involved as a NSF Fellow in the Galileo Program, where he collaborated with high school teachers to develop course modules that embed engineering concepts within high school math, science, and technology curricula.
Dr. Giblin believes that engineering education can greatly benefit from an environment where students are free to express ideas in a creative manner and engage in inquiry-based learning. He continually challenges students to construct new understandings of the fundamental concepts in engineering.
