Sr. Research Scientist - Program Manager - Energy Systems Division - Microsensor Laboratory
During my 20+-year long career in R&D at ANL I developed expertise interfacing complex control models to sensor networks for intelligent monitoring and automation, and in high performance computing.
• HPC operating systems experience includes libraries such as LINPACK©, Linda©, MPI©, and MPS©. Also PVM3©, Beowulf™ Parallel Clusters, and ANL’s Globus Toolkit© for Grid Computing.
Over my 20+ year tenure at ANL I had been responsible for proposing and being awarded over $21M in research funds (in 1990’s dollars).
In the past 5 years I have proposed and been Principal Investigator for over ten (10) Phase I SBIR/STTR projects with three (3) of those successfully moving to Phase II projects, and with total budgets of over $3M.
My research sponsors have included: U.S. Department Of Energy (DOE), U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center, DOE/National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Kansas City Plant, U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, Ecolab®, BAE Systems North America®, Terminix® Corporation, BRK Electronics - First Alert®, Eaton® Corporation, Smiths Detection®, General Atomics Corporation®, DOE Savannah River Site– Tritium Extraction Facility, General Dynamics Corporation®, and the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), to name a few.

Sr. Scientist - Special purpose electronics and instrumentation design and testing for chemical sensing and electronic nose development. Comprehensive data analysis and algorithm development.
I am the main research scientists for a start up bio-chem-technology company. We are commercializing electronic nose technology whose ground work originated from a 20 year program at the DOE National Laboratories.
We perform instrument and electronics design, fabrication, verification, and field validation. We also perform these services for other instrument developers and develop application-specific embedded intelligence to make their instruments adaptive and self-calibrating.
We use Heraeus, CoorsTek, Connor-Winfield, and Advanced Circuits as our fabrication vendors. We have worked for/with both small and large industrial and academic clients including Terminix, Ecolab, and Mayo Clinic.
Our contract with Mayo Clinic is interesting. We have been working for the Melanoma Treatment Center developing advanced AI-based analyses of clinical trial laboratory results (unsupervised classification and hyper-dimensional pattern recognition), and using this to model complex immunological responses of patients undergoing experimental chemo/immunotherapy. I have designed a layered computational patient model and expert system to predict patient response to treatments and to select and assign patients to the most favorable treatment. This work is on-going, and leverages the excellent research of the Melanoma Treatment Center and their director - Dr. Svetomir Markovic.

Adjunct Research Professor (sr. scientist) - US Army - Cyber Defense Laboratory
I was recruited by past DoD sponsors to apply my artificial intelligence experience to improving our nation’s cyber defense systems. I am a Sr. Research Scientist at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory’s Cyber Defense Lab operated by Western Kentucky University.
I work as the sr computer scientist in the team, and coordinate development with senior mathematicians and physicist to develop techniques for detection of covert computer network activity.
My work involves advanced methods for intrusion detection that are based upon efficient artificial intelligence and the mining of large warehouses of computer network traffic. It represents the embedding of self-structuring adaptive intelligence into large-scale systems for quick response to changing conditions and potential and identified threats.
