Detector Pool Specialist Oct. 2012 – Nov. 2015

Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory; Lemont, IL Responsible for the support, maintenance, and evaluation of x-ray detectors for the Advanced Photon Source’s Detector Pool, which provides an assortment of equipment to APS users around the synchrotron. While at ANL, I led the effort to standardize and improve the characterization of x-ray scintillators, including spectroscopic and time resolved efficiency measurements. Supported the day- to-day operation and troubleshooting of x-ray detectors for staff at beamlines, including the setup of EPICS controls and start-up scripts.

Research Engineer Oct. 2007 – Sept. 2012

Laboratory For Laser Energetics, University of Rochester; Rochester, NY Comprehensive managerial responsibility for the OMEGA Opto-Mechanical Group, supporting the research and education in science and technology undertaken at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics. The University of Rochester established the Laboratory for Laser Energetics in 1970 as a center for the investigation of the interaction of intense radiation with matter. The OMEGA Opto-Mechanical Group supports the operation of the OMEGA and OMEGA EP laser systems and has a staff of 25, comprised of opto-mechanical engineers and technicians with an annual budget of $3-4 million. Sr. Labortory Engineer June 2004 – Sept. 2007

Laboratory For Laser Energetics, University of Rochester; Rochester, NY Assigned to various projects at increased levels of impact and responsibility throughout tenure. Project coordination, design and alignment for OMEGA EP subsystem projects. Non-Coating Process Engineer July 2000-Aug. 2003

Barr Associates; Westford, MA

Responsible for the development of optical monitoring systems for thin film deposition and a new testing system for thin film filters. Utilized GPIB communication to collect data from Tunable Laser Sources, Optical Spectrum Analyzer, and polarization controllers. References Furnished Upon Request
