Dr. Diane Peters, assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan, with expertise in combined design and control of mechatronic systems.

Dr. Peters joined Kettering in 2013. She was attracted to Kettering in particular because of the school’s strong connections with industry and the students’ enthusiasm and drive. She thinks that Kettering students are talented, mature, and a lot of fun to be around. She enjoys teaching them and advising the students in both A and B sections of the Society of Women Engineers.

Hot tip for prospective students: “Don’t be afraid to come to office hours. I like to have students stop by, and sometimes there are M&M’s in the bowl on my desk.”

Outside interests: Dr. Peters enjoys sewing, woodworking, and volunteering with homeless animals when she’s not on campus working. She has two rescued dogs of her own.

Dr. Diana A. Phillips, Associate Professor of Physical Chemistry
Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in Physical Chemistry, with expertise in physical chemistry, catalysis, surface chemistry and analysis.

Phillips views Kettering students as bright, eager and insightful and feels that they are more motivated and focused than students she has had elsewhere. What she enjoys most about teaching at Kettering is the opportunity to meet and interact with tomorrow's leaders. She feels that Kettering's high quality students "make teaching here a pleasure."

She has a list of advice for prospective students: "be prepared to hit the ground running; don't believe you know everything from high school; if you do not understand something or are having trouble with a class get help right away, don't wait until it is too late to catch up; and enjoy yourself!"

Hidden talents and outside interests: In addition to travel and spending time with her family, Phillips also enjoys making mead in her meadery.
