I am a physicist / engineer / entrepreneur. I founded Heliotronics, Inc. to develop educational products that integrate live renewable energy data into curricula to teach about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) - See www.solarlearninglab.com and www.heliotronics.com
My earlier work includes inverter design, related project management and program management to develop and integrate data acquisition systems, web platforms and related educational software. I hold two patents relating to inverter design. I have also written about macro trends including, 15 years ago, correctly predicting when PV would break the $1.00 / Watt barrier.
Prior to my work in renewable energy I did defense research and development at MIT Lincoln Laboratories. I have a B.A. in physics and minor in mathematics from Washington University and an M.S. Physics from Purdue university.
