President (Fall 2014-Present) Alpha Technology, LLC - Responsible for technical direction for this technology-based company.

Technical Mentor (Winter 2013-Spring 2016) Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore, CA - Act as technical mentor in the area of nanotechnology methods, materials, and equipment.

Principal Member of Technical Staff (Winter 2011-Spring 2012), Senior Member of Technical Staff (Spring 2008-Winter 2011), Member of Technical Staff (Spring 2003-Spring 2008) Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore, CA - Led and performed research and development in the area of microscale and nanoscale engineering and science.

 Acted as Principal Investigator and lead researcher for multiple projects (total budget $1M) including conductive carbon-nanotube-filled polymers for enhanced electrical and mechanical performance, nanopatterned plasmonic surfaces for enhanced solar energy conversion and optical cloaking, passive wireless sensor tags for security applications, MEMS switches for high voltage applications, and carbon nanotube transistors for infrared detection. These projects required coordination of and collaboration with interdisciplinary teams including mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, materials scientists, and chemists. Success in these projects was demonstrated by peer-reviewed publications, presentations, and continued funding.

 Acted as primary science and technology point of contact for a major National Security area within Sandia National Laboratories.

 Served as mentor to university students and new staff members in the design, fabrication, and testing of novel devices and metamaterials. I educated these individuals in both the theoretical and experimental aspects of microscale and nanoscale technology and devices.

 Served as recruiting team lead for the University of California, Davis. I was responsible for ensuring that our recruiting efforts attract the best students from UC Davis. This included organizing recruiting teams of engineers and scientists from Sandia National Laboratories to give technical presentations, attend career fairs, and sponsor student activities.

 Served as principal investigator of the Center for Critical Application Sensing (CCAS) at Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore, CA. This center provided sensing solutions through expertise in technology development and systems engineering for National Security applications.

 Led and performed research and development for multiple projects including design and nanofabrication of surface acoustic wave devices for ultra-low power wireless communication, electrical breakdown in high-voltage microsystems, and low-power non-contact voltage sensing with a MEMS device. These projects involved the design, fabrication, and characterization of devices and systems. Success was in large part demonstrated by peer reviewed publications and presentations.

 Acted as co-lead for the Microsystems and Engineering Sciences Applications (MESA), California, technical seminar series. I worked closely with my colleague to arrange monthly technical seminars from outside and inside researchers relevant to microsystems and National Security applications.

-2JACK L. SKINNER JSKINNER@MTECH.EDU Graduate Student Researcher (Fall 2004-Fall 2007) Berkeley Sensor and Actuator Center, Berkeley, CA - Performed research in the area of diffractive optical microsystems for tunable filters and modulators.





 Developed optical modulator and filter with the use of nanofabrication and microfabrication. This research integrated a MEMS electrostatic transducer with a nanopatterned plasmonic surface to provide active control of the reflection of a narrow band of visible-wavelength light.

 Developed a nanopatterned optical metamaterial for use in refractive index measurement and biological and chemical detection.

 Developed optical modular and filter for infrared wavelengths. This research integrated a MEMS actuator with a micropatterned surface to control the transmission and reflection of infrared light.

Graduate Assistant (Summer 2001-Fall 2002) Washington State University, Pullman, WA Characterized and optimized mechanical and electrical performance of piezoelectric membrane generators for use in a microelectromechanical (MEMS) micro heat engine.

 Developed a piezoelectric membrane generator to convert mechanical energy from a saturated liquid-vapor heat engine to electrical energy for a portable power system.

 Developed a pneumatic bulge tester to simulate heat engine performance for characterization of piezoelectric membrane generators.

Teaching Assistant (Spring 2001) Washington State University, Pullman, WA - Instructed students in a classroom and lab environment on the behavior and application of materials for engineering structures.

 Prepared lectures to convey in a clear and concise manner the fundamental behavior of materials in various static and dynamic loading conditions.

 Provided additional education to students on an individual basis outside of class hours to maximize each student’s understanding of the subject matter.

Track Laborer (Summer 2000) Rarus Railway Company, Anaconda, MT - Repaired and installed railway track and associated hardware.

Engineering Tutor (Fall 1999-Spring 2000) Tech Learning Center, Montana Tech, Butte, MT Tutored all undergraduate general engineering courses, as well as mathematics and physics as required.

Engineering Intern (Summer 1999) Burlington Resources, Farmington, NM - Increased natural gas production through daily planning, monitoring, and actions as field engineer.
