Responsible for operations maintenance for NIF Laser systems, including system alignment, oscillator systems, preamplifer systems, power amplifier, diagnostics, final optics, optics inspection. Prior to this was responsible for developing precision placement and laser alignment systems for NIF, the worlds most energetic laser system. Has a fundamental patent on the NIF laser pulseshaping system. Two papers in 2010 and 2011 through SPIE and OSA detail NIF laser alignment innovations which led to the present successful operating system. Prior to NIF, was responsible for a number of high-speed electronics and microwave engineering systems for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
