I joined the faculty of Southeastern Louisiana University in January of 1995, and was promoted to the rank of Professor in 2005. I have also served as the CIO since 1996.

Before joining the Southeastern faculty, I taught and was involved in research and development at Texas A&M University in College Station, and University of North Texas in Denton. I earned a Ph.D. degree from Texas A&M University. My activities in the last three decades have involved engineering, science, and technology. Among my qualifications are: teaching, computing systems, systems engineering, distance education, adult education/training, and technology management.

I am married to Jessica and we have four young ones; Joshua, Joy, Jonathan, and Juliette.

I am also the owner of Asoodeh and Associates, and have done consulting work for a number companies and universities. My name is on a patent for a laser distance measurement system, and a pending patent on an RTK level measurement system for ship and barge operations.
