John brings deep technology expertise to his work with L&A’s Electronics and Computer Technologies, Internet and Software, and Medical Devices groups. His work and academic experience have exposed him to a wide range of technologies, including very large scale integration, sensors and electronic instrumentation, advanced electronics, integrated chip fabrication and design, and embedded systems. John has prosecuted and written applications in a variety of technical areas, including:
Prior to his career at L&A, John worked at one of Procter & Gamble’s largest manufacturing facilities, where he was responsible for leading an issue-resolution team in the field of lean manufacturing. He devised and implemented solutions to a wide range of electrical and mechanical problems, and trained line teams in a variety of areas.
While at Rensselaer, John led a large number of teams in fields ranging from volunteer construction work to embedded systems design innovation. He led a team sponsored by Cypress Semiconductors to improve upon and popularize the Programmable System-on-Chip (PSoC) microcontroller by organizing the team and controlling various technical sectors of the project, including the creation of a control system to regulate the internal conditions of a thermal chamber designed to house a 3-D printer. The chamber enabled the use of alternate printing materials by creating, monitoring and regulating the appropriate ambient conditions and performed as designed for.
