1800 E. Paul Dirac Dr.
Tallahassee , FL 32310-3706
- Master's degree, Massachussetts Institute of Technology, 1989
- Measured the AC loss time constants of multifilamentary Nb3Al superconducting wires at the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI).
- Bachelor's degree, Pennsylvania State University, 1987
- Superconducting magnets and cryogenic systems.
- Worked on the engineering design, fabrication, installation and test of the United States Demonstration Poloidal Coil (US-DPC). The US-DPC was a prototype ohmic heating coil for a tokamak fusion reactor funded by the Department of Energy. The coil used Nb3Sn superconducting wire and Incoloy 908 cable-in-conduit conductor (CICC) technology. The US-DPC was built by the Massachussetts Institute of Technology and installed and tested at the JAERI.
- Worked on the 45 Tesla Hybrid magnet outsert coils which also used CICC technology this time with modified 316LN conduit material. The 45 Tesla Hybrid is presently installed at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL).
- Worked on the 900 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) magnet system to be installed at the NHMFL.
