Philip Asare is an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto. He was previously an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Bucknell University since August 2015. His interests are broadly in people and technology, and he loves helping others learn about these topics to develop themselves personally and professionally. On the people side, he is involved in many multi-disciplinary collaborations, and he teaches on how people work together to develop technology and how this process interfaces with the larger society. On the technology side, he has worked and taught in the field of embedded and cyber-physical systems. Most of his past work has been on medical and healthcare applications, but recently he has extended his work to energy and civic agriculture. He hopes to venture into newer areas soon. He only enjoys doing hands-on work if he is allowed to break things, and has fried many components and crashed a few systems in his time as an engineer all in the name of learning and development.
