I’m a North Carolina-based scientist and program leader in the areas of technical innovation, R&D performance, and materials characterization. I have degrees in materials science and physics, but I’ve worked in a variety of fields, including computational science, software development, and polymer science. I use a broad host of tools to get things done, which has given me experience with some other topics including leading innovation, statistics and designed experimentation, measurement science, technology licensing and acquisition, and quantitative microscopy and stereology.

I currently lead global platform development for a business unit of AkzoNobel, a leader in the coatings industry. Previously, I led the core materials characterization facility and research & development in multiple areas for Milliken and Company.
