Howard Winston joined the Physics Department in 2014 as an Assistant Professor in Residence at the Waterbury regional campus. Prior to this appointment, he worked at the Schlumberger-Doll Research Center (SDR) in Ridgefield and then at the United Technologies Research Center (UTRC). He obtained his B.S. degree in Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1978, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from Brown University in 1980 and 1984, respectively.
While at UTRC, Howard worked in the areas of autonomous systems for planning and visual data interpretation and electrical diagnostics using constraint-based reasoning and embedded time domain reflectometers. Although his primary appointment is in the Physics department, Howard has taught calculus and engineering courses at Waterbury and is the faculty advisor for Waterbury’s physics and engineering majors. Since 2019, he has been developing novel forms of mixed reality-based educational technology and currently leads a research project, with collaborators at Salisbury University and Storrs.
