M. David Luneau, Jr., Associate Professor of Engineering Technology
David Luneau began teaching at UALR in the fall of 1991 in the Department of Engineering Technology. Prior to that his Electrical Engineering degrees from Rice University and Georgia Tech prepared him for jobs in flight simulation programming at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston and test engineering and database management at AT&T in Little Rock. His current areas of research interest are in remote camera applications and video technology. He remains involved in the ongoing search for the Ivory-billed Woodpecker, which he captured briefly on video in 2004. He works with field biologists designing wireless camera systems that are used for inspecting nest cavities in trees. He is also the technical manager for Solar Splash, an international, intercollegiate student competition in which students design and build boats that are powered by solar energy. He has been involved with the event since its inception in 1994 - the first five years as a faculty advisor for a team, and as an event official since 1999.
