Additional Experience

Expert Witness Experience
Testified in fatal crash, single car accident. Driver was accused of being under control of a controlled substance. Worked for the defense team. Because of work on this case and testimony, most charges against this driver were dropped. Expert was opposed by 3 expert witnesses and the state's toxicologist.

Expert has been involved in depositions. Expert was teaching in Tennessee at the time.

Consulting Experience:
Currently working with an anonymous client ( Expert is under an NDA), to measure small levels of electromagnetic energy. This is a feasibility study that requires a theoretical and experimental approach. Several prototypes were constructed in his machine shop and electronics lab, to answer the question of this investigation. Expert has to build a new, delta style 3d robotic printer, with the ability to print in multiple materials, to print a functional prototype for the study. He programmed the robot with an Arduino IDE. Expert also had to make changes in the Marlin firmware (C language) and upload the sketch via a USB serial interface to flash the memory of the microcontroller. He is using a Lanovo G50 laptop with an Ubunto 16.04 OS, Ardunio IDE (for Linux) and MaterControl host program to communicate with my robotics printer. This is the 2nd robotics printer that he has built. In addition, Expert has to build a capacitor sensor and build/buy a electromagnetic field meter to measure electromagnetic energy from the prototypes (March 2018-present).

b) Multiplexing of 100s or 1000s of different separate radio channels
c) Encryption
d) Image analysis
e) Bomb detection
f) RFID tags and reader
g) Last mile solutions
Expert used Sagemath, and Mathcad to write the image processing, encryption and communications code.
