Biography

Dr. Hembree completed his Ph.D. at UAHuntsville in December of 2010 and he currently serves as a lecturer in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department here at the university. He has thirteen years total teaching experience which includes five here at UAHuntsville. He has taught seven different courses in our undergraduate curriculum mainly in the solid mechanics area. In addition to his teaching experience, Dr. Hembree also has research experience in the areas of Multibody Dynamics, Dynamic Modeling and Simulation, and Computer-Aided Modeling. His Ph.D. research topic consisted of the formulation of a recursive rigid body tether model which produced two co-authored refereed journal publications and one AIAA conference paper.
