Professional History

Professional Projects
Stricter/More Efficient Energy Use Model for Printers
Developed model for a consulting firm that advises power companies in the Pacific northwest resulting in 40% savings compared to the current Energy Star specifications. Monte Carlo simulations were conducted with modified duty cycles. Approximately 30% of the printers currently on the market meet this specification. Home and office duty cycles were tested on ink jets, mono lasers, and color lasers.

Solar Array System - patented roof shingle product
Start-up renewable energy company designed a click-able system of roof panels that resemble classic shingle design. Calculated temperature/pressure tolerance of internal element under the physical strain of the laminating process.

Automated Vehicle Identification at a Distance
SBIR Collaborative Proposal for Special Operations Command (not funded). Solution needed to include off-the-shelf technology. Proposed solution consisted of license plates with retro-reflector bar code overlays. From distance, infrared lasers would scan and read the bar code then query the database to determine if the vehicle is registered as friendly. view full proposal

Heat Transfer Model with Discontinuous Boundary Conditions
3-D heat transfer model of ice sphere floating in water. Air temperature = 0 degrees Celsius and water temperature > 0 degrees Celsius, therefore boundary conditions were discontinuous at the water surface.

Current Work
Web development, database construction and analysis, modeling, consulting.
