Multi-disciplinary ideation, Creation, Evaluation, and production
“I have a particular set of skills…”
My experience extends over a broad range of subjects, based on a joy of learning and continuous improvement, and enabling me to take on and complete a wide variety of projects.
Additive manufacturing & rapid prototyping
Data and Image Analysis
Chemistry and materials science & engineering
Instrumental analysis, materials characterization, metrology, and test & measurement
Research, reviews, Internet, and investigations with processing, summarizing, presenting, and reporting of findings
Hardware and Mechanical Projects for building, Maintaining, and repairing items in the Home, Laboratory, Mobility, and Production
A few things I’m great at:
3D modeling in CAD programs, such as Autodesk Fusion 360, to create custom 3D printed products for both work and play.
Custom-designed Ring Video Doorbell Pro mount that required angles over different planes and a stepped contour to ensure that the camera would face the desired direction on the exterior of our home.
Synthetic organic chemistry for biomedical research in anti-gene (DNA-binding) and anti-sense (RNA-binding) applications in close collaborations with molecular biology groups.
Computational chemistry to visualize the optimized structure and electronic properties of conjugated organic materials.
Geometry-optimized structures with the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) and lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) of a three repeat units of a conjugated polymer
Electrochemical synthesis and evaluation of polymers for charge storage applications.
Synthetic organic chemistry, along with analytical, organometallic, physical, and polymer chemistry for evaluating and optimizing the optical properties of polymer-lanthanide-ligand complexes that emitted visible and near-infrared light.
Studying the photo-physics of energy absorption, emission as heat or vibrations, fluorescence, and phosphorescence.
Marketing documents that I significantly contributed to and/or created for promoting laboratory services in academic and commercial laboratories that I managed.
Types of materials characterization and root cause failure analysis related to electronics manufacturing through advanced analytical instrumentation and methods:
Raspberry Pi projects such as OctoPrint for 3D printer control, Pi-Hole network ad-blocking, and more
Software and services on my home network that include running a network attached storage (NAS) / low-end server for:
Running Pop!_OS Linux on various laptops
Installed and use both Pop!_OS and Windows on both my Dell Chromebook 13 and Lenovo Legion Y720 laptops
Running Ubuntu MATE and other virtual machines
Installed and use Ubuntu MATE on a virtual machine, desktops, and Raspberry Pi systems.
