I have spent the last 15 years working for high-technology startups centered around universities and the SBIR/STTR program. I am an expert in optical experiments with automated computer control using digital and analog data acquisition hardware and LabVIEW software. I worked at the University of Oklahoma in multiple cleanroom facilities doing characterization and fabrication of nanomaterials for the infrared spectrum. I also spent 18 months working as a post-doctoral engineer on visible and UV light systems for microfabrication in the labs at the formerly renamed Liquid Crystal Institute at Kent State.
I have worked in multiple scientific fields for a combination of both commercial and university groups. I have applied my knowledge of CAD design, fabrication, optics,and many types of software programming for peer-reviewed papers in chemistry, physics, biomedicine, veterinary medicine, and geology.
