NASA , Cleveland Ohio
January 1991 - April 2012
Scientific programming, Web technologies, social media and educational outreach.
January 1986 - January 1991
Algorithm development in the areas of image processing and robotics.
Worked on a team designing and building a "layout gage" for high precision measurement of manufactured airfoils.
Wrote six internal technical memoranda on optical gaging software, coordinate transformation in robot-based optical gaging, airfoil edge gaging methods, Trapix image processor software development, image processing algorithm development for optical gaging, and three dimensional optical gage calibration.
Republic Steel/LTV Research Center
September 1982 - January 1985
Algorithm design for non-destructive evaluation of steel products. Did real-time programming, signal processing and electromagnetic and ultrasonic modeling of sensors.
Did some design of eddy current and ultrasonic sensors.
Part of a team designing a device called Rotaspect that was to detect "pipe" ( holes ) in bar products as they came off the rolling mill.
