On this episode of Conversations in the Zone, I have the unique pleasure of chatting with Nels Madsen.  Nels grew up in Iowa City where he met his wife, Fran – their 40th anniversary is coming up this year.  He has a B.A. in Physics, M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanics and Hydraulics – all from the University of Iowa.  He's been employed at Auburn University since 1978 where he currently serves as Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Associate Dean in the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering.  He's also worked with Motion Reality, Inc. (MRI) since 1984 as Research Director for their motion capture efforts.  Nels loves teaching and working on motion capture development – he was fortunate to be recognized along with colleagues from MRI with an Academy Award for Technical Achievement related to their motion capture efforts.

To learn more about Nels and the work he loves, visit Motion Reality, Inc. and Mechanical Engineering Department at Auburn University.
