Michael W. Mackay


My career began as a lead design engineer of infrared threat warning sensors for the Advanced Tactical Fighter program at Boeing and General Electric.  I'm currently employed as a Civil Engineer airfield program manager (civilian) at McConnell AFB.  My two sons are majoring in electrical engineering at Kansas State University.  I hope to retire soon and use my knowledge of spherical Bessel functions as they apply to fly-fishing for trout in the Rocky Mountains.


"Consider me an aberration in Miami's Physics Department, since I changed majors my junior year and took PHY 380 from Dr. Arfken before taking PHY 180 from Dr. Pechan during his rookie year.  The infinite patience displayed by these gentlemen while accommodating my convoluted journey was rivaled only by their wisdom."
