I help our Michigan Area Operation support the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center in their ground vehicle survivability engineering efforts. For over 15+ years, I have worked in survivability/vulnerability engineering/analysis. I have 19 years of experience in engineering front-line research, development, and test and evaluation from applied research to system levels. I have implemented survivability assessment practices and analytical methods to assess systems, and I have also planned and executed live-fire test and evaluation using combat threats for military vehicle critical systems. I currently hold a B.S. in aerospace and astronautics from the University of Washington and an M.S. in mechanical engineering from California State University, Northridge.
