M.S., Mechanical Engineering — Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
M.A. Sustainability – Harvard University

Palo Verde Generating Station Reliability Engineer since 1991 with primary responsibility in the lubrication program. Additional qualifications include vibration and thermography.

Developed and installed a full service on site lubricant condition monitoring testing laboratory at the PVGS station. Capabilities include 24 routine test methods patterned upon ASTM standards and used to determine lubricant or machine condition and to forecast expected future condition for each monitored characteristic.

  • Structured and developed custom laboratory tests
  • Primary technical support for laboratory
  • Accurate repair recommendations made based upon data generated for all types of power plant machinery
Grease Testing Pioneered and developed grease testing methodology that is unique to the lubricant industry in that it allows characterization testing of small volume samples. Key paper written in support of this work is used as a technical basis for on-site grease condition monitoring testing. Paper was peer reviewed through ELGI in Europe. This technology has been employed by EPRI in published research reports.

Station Root Cause expert including Causal Factors, Kempner Trego analysis and other related techniques. Expert in use of microscopic examination to characterize failure modes and mechanisms for machinery parts.

Harvard Master’s thesis built upon condition monitoring background and was based upon field measurements of vibration energy that travels through the air and which is produced by commercial aircraft as aircraft passed overhead at various heights above ground and offsets from the direct flight path. A unique testing protocol was designed to mimic the impact of aircraft energy transmission inside a dwelling. These measurements were determined to primarily consist of low frequency (20-40 Hz) and infrasound (frequencies below hearing threshold). The source of these sounds was a combination of air passing over and around the aircraft and through the jet turbine. It was determined that each flyover Significant health issues were associated with vibrational energy during flyovers.

Chairman and founder of ASTM sub-committee D02.CS96. This group of 200+ global experts comprises a technical committee with a scope to write new standards in support of laboratory test methods and practices related to lubricant condition monitoring and the testing of in-service lubricants.

  • Honored by ASTM with Award of Merit and titled with “Fellow status” in 2012
Chairman of Board of Directors for a not for profit certification organization, International Council of Machinery Lubrication (ICML) located in Tulsa Oklahoma. ICML provides worldwide lubrication and lubricant condition monitoring related professional testing and certification.

Auburn University – Advisory board member for Undergraduate Engineering Program.
