Expert was responsible for developing and evaluating new products for their ability to substitute for CFC-113 solvents in electronics defluxing and industrial cleaning applications. He directed and managed the testing of two products for the IPC/DoD/EPA Phase 2 Test; both products passed. He was appointed a member of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) Solvents, Coatings, and Adhesives Technical Options Committee in January 1991. He was directly involved in advising parties how to get out of using CFCs and other ozone depleting substances and dealing with their problems.

Expert set up a process development center (including an analytical support laboratory) for investigating the cleanliness of both conventional printed wiring assemblies (PWAs) and surface mount assemblies (SMAs). He specified all the equipment used in the process development center and has made numerous carefully conduct.

Expert was the director of a process development center devoted to producing and testing conventional through-hole printed wiring assemblies and surface mount assemblies. He managed a department consisting of three engineers, two chemists, and two technicians. He is very familiar with the relevant technical management issues of electronics manufacturing management. He recently wrote a chapter dealing with the technical management of fine pitch technology, a branch of electronics manufacturing of surface mount devices. He has a strong business background and holds an MBA.

Expert, in his capacity as director of a printed wiring assembly and surface mount assembly process development center, specified all necessary processing equipment.

Expert is currently involved with investigating the behavior of surface mount solder joints (SMSJs). Of particular importance is determining the life distribution functions of leadless joints, J-leads, and gull wing leads. He has also studied the detailed metallurgy of solder, especially eutectic or 63% Sn/37% Pb solder. He has read a number of papers on this subject and is currently heading-up an investigation on this subject.

Expert was responsible for process development engineering for evaluating, testing, and developing new industrial solvent cleaning agents and cleaning equipment for the electronics, precision cleaning, and metalworking.

Expert investigated several techniques for detecting and quantifying contaminating species on the surface of electronic boards and assemblies.
