David Kraemer has been a teaching faculty member in the Johns Hopkins Department of Mechanical Engineering since 2013, where he teaches several undergraduate core and elective courses in computing, fluid and solid mechanics, renewable energy, and mechatronics. He is co-developing a multi-year interdisciplinary project course to enable students to design, build, test, and operate a sensor on the DAVINCI spacecraft, a NASA mission to Venus. He conducts numerical simulations of ocean wave-energy conversion devices and served as chief technical advisor for a small ocean wave-energy startup company. In 2018, he was the recipient of the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association Excellence in Teaching Award.

Kraemer earned a BS degree from the University of Notre Dame, an MS degree from the University of Michigan, and MS and PhD degrees from the Johns Hopkins University. He has served as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the U.S. Naval Academy and Bucknell University.
