Michael Hudoba

Michael Hudoba

Associate Professor & Department Chair, Faculty Trustee


Michael Hudoba, Ph. D., moved from Canfield, Ohio in 2005 to begin his undergraduate career in Mechanical Engineering at The Ohio State University. He graduated magna cum laude and began working towards his master’s degree in 2009 with a focus of user-centered product design. In 2011, he was asked to be Carlos Castro’s first graduate student in the Nanoengineering and Biodesign Lab at OSU where his researched focused on the development, characterization and implementation of DNA based nanomachines to measure…

David Stucki

David Stucki

Senior Instructor


David J. Stucki received a B.S. in Mathematics from Wheaton College (IL), and an M.S. in Computer Science from The Ohio State University, where he also completed course work for a Ph.D. in Artificial Intelligence. Complexities of life prevented him from completing a dissertation, but landed him in a full time faculty position at Otterbein in 1996, where he has enjoyed teaching a mixture of Computer Science, Mathematics, and INST/FYS courses. While at Otterbein his research interests have expanded into…

Uwe Trittmann

Uwe Trittmann

Professor


Dr. Trittmann is a theoretical particle physicist. After receiving his doctorate from the University of Heidelberg in Germany, he did post-doctoral research at the Weizmann Institute in Israel and at the Ohio State University. His research focuses on the properties of lower-dimensional quantum field theories. Often he uses numerical methods to obtain results concerning the energies (masses) of bound states of fundamental particles. Dr. Trittmann teaches the gamut of physics offerings, from the introductory sequency to advanced topics, and the INST astronomy course. He is…
