Message from Barbara Son, Ph.D.

Hi, I am Dr. Barbara Son. I enjoyed teaching U.S. Marines at a U.S. Marine Base, Air Force personnel, and engineers at the Boeing Corp. I've been teaching online at AU since the beginning of 2003 and at Devry Institute of Technology (online) as well, and am currently in the Dept. of Economics & Statistics at California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA).

 

My husband and I live in Rancho Palos Verdes in Southern California. We have a romantic ocean view. I have also been assisting my husband, who is the President of three engineering companies (Pressure Profile, Medical Tactile and Siera Scientific Instruments) which design, develop, and manufacture tactile sensing systems for the U.S. Army, the National Institute of Health (NIH), and Johnson and Johnson.

 

Let's enjoy all our activities!
