Dr. Richert joined the School of Engineering in August 2018 as a lecturer and is now an Assistant Professor of Teaching in Manufacturing Engineering. He teaches courses related to Automation, Controls, and Mechatronics.

He earned a PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of California San Diego with a focus on distributed control algorithms for networked systems.  After completing his PhD, Dr. Richert joined Cymer Inc. (an ASML company) as a Senior Algorithms Engineer where he designed and validated embedded control systems for extreme ultraviolet (EUV) light sources used in semiconductor manufacturing.

Returning to Canada in 2017, Dr. Richert began post-doctoral research at the University of Calgary where he designed a real-time noise monitoring sensor network for the City of Calgary. He also taught a course in Computer Architecture and guest lectured in topics such as Signals and Systems, and Artificial Intelligence.
