44586,  BS Materials Engineering,  Two years experience,  Key team member analyzing glass and carbon fiber pultruded composites to determine long term mechanical properties in various ageing environments. Evaluated several composite material surface treatments using different processes.  Identified unusual material behavior in aged mechanical properties and championed a new model approach for predicting long term properties with better accuracy.  Promoted to Materials Engineer 6 months after starting as Laboratory Technician where he trained other Technicians.  Utilized MTS, Optical Microscope, DSC, and DMA.
