Welcome to my personal blog!
I'm Burford (Buff) Furman, currently Professor of Mechanical Engineering at San José State University, where I have been since 1994. Prior to coming to SJSU, I worked at IBM in San José designing components for disk drives. My areas of interest for research and teaching are in solar-powered automated transit, mechatronics, and intelligent mechanical systems.
I've been co-leading the Spartan Superway project at SJSU since fall of 2012. There is much more about the Superway project at: http://www.engr.sjsu.edu/smssv/ and http://spartansuperway.blogspot.com/
