Joshua Brake is an Assistant Professor of Engineering at Harvey Mudd College. Before joining the faculty at Harvey Mudd, he received his Ph.D. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and his M.S. and B.S. in Engineering with an Electrical Concentration from LeTourneau University. During his Ph.D. studies he developed new tools and techniques in biomedical optics to see deeper into tissue. He enjoys teaching digital electronics because of the powerful and complex systems that can be built from a series of simple-to-understand modules. In addition to his passion for electrical engineering and optics, he enjoys working with students to hone their oral, written, and visual communication skills. When he's not in the lab or at his desk, you'll likely find him spending time with his wife and son, outside running in the year-round Southern California sunshine, or rooting for his favorite sports teams (New York Mets and Tennessee Titans).
