He joined Union Camp Corporation in 1970 working on pulp and paper research. Shortly thereafter, he joined Rutgers University first as a Post-Doctoral Fellow and then as a Research Assistant Professor in 1972 to work on problems related to atmospheric dispersion and pollution. He left Rutgers to join General Electric Research and Development Centre (GE R&D) in 1976 to work on research and development in the areas of propulsion and power generation. In 1981, he left GE R&D to become an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Arizona State University (ASU). The following year he was promoted to Professor and remained there until 1996 when he took a two-year leave of absence to head the Mechanical Engineering Department at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HK PolyU).
