Involved in alternative energy technology development and management for more than 20 years. I have a combination of talents that allow me to excel, with proven technical, business and marketing results in R&D and product development.
I have managed and conducted hands-on research on fuel cells, electrolyzers, lithium-ion batteries and other electrochemical technologies. I have conducted and supervised component and system technology development; optimization and MATLAB/Simulink modeling of complete air-breathing hydrogen fuel cell power plants for High-Altitude, Long Endurance (HALE) aircraft (acknowledgement),and competitive analysis of commercial electrochemical systems.
Most recently while I was the Process Engineering Manager at Joule Unlimited Technologies, Inc., my team designed and procured the one-acre efficient, eco-friendly and commercially-viable process for the production of photosynthetically-produced 4th-generation hydrocarbon biofuels, and obtained approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for an advanced biofuel that reduced lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 85.1%, relative to the baseline gasoline standard. Other biotech projects have involved adapting direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) technology to produce a portable infusion fluid thermal heating system, and developing a state-of-the-art cooling subsystem for a portable oxygen-enriched air persufflation system for enhanced human organ preservation during transport.
