He received more than 30 grants and contracts, providing substantial outside funding for his research group.
He authored more than 60 technical papers, and his textbooks were translated into three languages. Thomas Lipo, another editor-in-chief of the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics and a contemporary of Dick, described Dick as a "towering figure in the early days of power electronics.
