Experienced Development/Validation/Quality Engineer with over 20 years experience in ISO environments, including the semiconductor, sensor, RFID, magnetic materials, battery, and materials development industries. Outstanding collaboration/development successes and technical accomplishments in the areas of validation, product improvement and cost reduction. Proven track record in quality improvement, equipment validation, resolving quality issues and continuous improvement.
Led new product development team that designed and developed the product which launched a new profitable and successful business model that shifted the direction of the company.
Cost reduced and improved quality of existing products which allowed company to maintain market share and remain competitive in the face of increased competition (one change alone saved $2.3M).
Created new technologies which were critical to the success of launching new million dollar (each!) products.
Developed a new technology that shares a patent with a Nobel Prize winning chemist.
Utilized data to support company legal positions and ultimately prevented infringement (put a competitor out of business).
Synthesized the first High Temperature Superconducting filaments reported in literature.
