Research Experience

Freelance Grant Writing Consultant January 2011–Present

    I help researchers write compelling and fundable grant proposals. In addition to crafting the proposal, I can help to identify relevant opportunities, research competing approaches, and align the proposal to the funding agency’s higher objectives.

Chief Scientist, ASE Optics, Inc. March 2004–January 2011

    I led ASE’s internal research for seven years while also providing optical engineering support to ASE’s external clients. Two patents have been awarded based on my research; a third is pending.

Consulting Scientist, Lumetrics, Inc. August 2003–November 2003

    I provided early scientific support for Lumetrics’ successful commercialization of an “orphan” measurement technology developed at Eastman Kodak.
