Eagle Harbor Technologies

Research Engineer (2012-2016)

I have contributed to the fundamental research, development and commercialization of EHT's primary commercial line of High-Voltage Nanosecond Pulse Generators. In addition, I've contributed to research projects funded under SBIR programs through NASA, DOE, Navy, and the Air Force. I've created both control and high-power circuitry from concept, to PCB design, to testing and application. Though the testing and troubleshooting of these circuits, I have developed extensive experience in high-power and high-frequency measurements (up to ~100MHz), including familiar with high-voltage testing safety. I also have developed machining/prototyping experience, and an even greater knowledge of electric, magnetic, and mechanical material properties for construction.
