Strasbaugh, Chris

Biography

Always interested in harnessing emerging technology for research and in the classroom, Chris has had different positions at OSU that have pushed technology usage at the University.  Currently he leads teams in the College of Engineering Technology services that support classroom and lab technology, software, instructional design, accessibility, and emerging technologies.  He has also helped the Center for Aviation Studies develop and teach multiple courses on foundations of UAS and developed the beginnings of the Drone Lab that is supporting research across the University.  

Chris is very active nationally in the field of UAS and emerging technologies and has presented at numerous conferences on topics ranging from the UAS technology, virtual reality, imaging technologies, GIS, semantic web, and makerspaces. He has also served as the staff photographer of the Greek-American Excavations at Kenchreai through Harvard University from 2015-2017, 2023-2024 as well as the Vanderbilt Excavations at Caesarea, Israel in 2019. Chris has a BA in Photography (2004) from Mount Vernon Nazarene University and an MA in Art History from the University of Cincinnati (2007).
