For over four decades, I’ve supported GE Global Research in leveraging our multidisciplinary core capabilities and a workforce of over 1,000 subject matter experts to design and develop advanced solutions to complex, challenging problems. I’ve worked for many years with GE Healthcare on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which requires significant expertise in superconductivity and cryogenics. I’ve also been involved in the design and development of several prototype superconducting motors and generators, as well as the study and advancement of many types of energy and power sources.
