What it's like doing a Ph.D. degree at McMaster with Dr. Bone:
"It is a very exciting experience to study as a Ph.D student with Dr. Bone. I have learned so much from Dr. Bone including not only the knowledge but also his scientific working attitude. Dr. Bone gives me help in detail whenever I encounter problems. Can you imagine a professor who would check your program sentence by sentence? He does! I really enjoy my studying here at McMaster University."

Name:  Timber Yuen,
Degree Dates:  Sept.92-Aug.98
Research Interests:   Real-time control of dynamic systems.
What it's like doing a Ph.D. degree at McMaster with Dr. Bone:
"Dr. Bone has a profound theoretical background and practical experience on real-time control of dynamic systems. He also gives his student very close supervision. This allowed him to give me much timely guidance and advice. He also went out of his way and helped me with software and hardware design. His help was especially valuable at times when my research was not going anywhere. I truely appreciated Dr. Bone's supervision, and have no reservation in recommending him to anyone as a thesis supervisor."

*Co-supervised with Dr. M.A. Elbestawi.
