He studied electrical engineering at Cornell and later earned his Ph.D. at Harvard University where he was a student in the Antenna Group directed by Professor R.W.P. King. Wunsch has spent most of his professional life at UMass Lowell where he is now Professor of Electrical Engineering, Emeritus. In 1995 he began offering “Principles and History of Radio,” a course geared for liberal arts majors, described in the article: Electrical Engineering for the Liberal Arts: Radio and Its History. Wunsch serves as book review editor of the IEEE magazine, Technology and Society and has authored the textbooks: “Complex Variables with Applications” (Pearson), currently in its third edition, and “A MATLAB Companion to Complex Variables” (Taylor and Francis). In 2017, the American Wireless Association Review published his article Paradigm Lost: Nikola Tesla's True Wireless. Wunsch recently rebuilt the Heathkit oscilloscope that he originally constructed in 1957. He is also an avid photographer, who shares his work on Flickr and published a selection of his photographs in the tome: "A. David Wunsch American Photographs 1964-2014."
