Employment History

Oct 2009-present, Computer Scientist
Alpha Omega Technologies, Inc.
Lead developer for the design, development, and testing of a resource scheduling engine for the federal government. The scheduler accepts a set of delimited and XML files that describe available resources and scheduling requirements. The scheduling engine applies a series of business constraints to assign qualified resources at specific times and locations. CMMI level 3 processes were used to manage requirements, perform measurement and analysis, establish quality assurance, manage risk etc. Technologies include Java/Swing, JDBC, JPA, XML

May 1996-Sep 2009, Consultant
Science and Engineering Applications
Information technology development, management, consulting and mentoring. Specialize in Java, XML, security and Internet systems for enterprise, handheld, and embedded applications. Customers include Addison-Wesley, Apple Computer, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Booz-Allen Hamilton, Food and Drug Administration, and Sun Microsystems. Developed secure, large scale Internet and Intranet portals. Integrated diverse systems using Web services, legacy, and proprietary protocols. Designed and implemented secure, large scale identity management systems. Technologies include Java EE, Java ME, Servlets/JSP, Java Swing, JDBC, JPA, XML, C#/.Net, Web Services, SAML, LDAP, Websphere, Weblogic, JBoss, Oracle, Sybase, SQL Server

Dec. 1993-Apr. 1996, Consultant
Naval Research Laboratory
Critically involved in the design, integration, and testing of a research satellite instrument (High Resolution Airglow/Auroral Spectrograph HIRAAS). Designed and coded all flight software along with ground support equipment. HIRAAS is a three instrument payload designed to measure ultraviolet air glow in the upper atmosphere. it is mounted on the earth side of a polar orbiting, sun synchronous satellite.

May 1993-Dec. 1993, Consultant
Fairchild Space and Defense
Member of an elite team assembled to design and develop a Silicon Graphics GL compliant graphics accelerator for sun sparcstations (TRU-D). Responsible for much of the geometry transformation algorithms along with rendering engine interface routines. TRU-D was a low cost alternative to Silicon Graphics in the medium speed (100,000 to 200,000 polygons/second) range. it includes Goraud shading, anti-aliased polygons, and high speed texture mapping.

Jul. 1992-May 1993, DSP Engineer
Watkins-Johnson, Communication Electronic Technology Division
Project engineer for a DSP based, portable direction finding receiver, WJ-8996. Designed all digital control electronics and developed many of the signal processing algorithms used for direction finding and demodulation. also assisted in the design of the RF synthesizers. The WJ-8996 is a general coverage receiver specially designed with a floating point signal processor to determine angle of arrival of signals in the range of 20-2000 MHz. The WJ-8996 is battery powered, includes an Ethernet interface and AMPS/TACS cellular intercept capability. The electronics were optimized for low power and high performance.

Oct. 1989-Jul. 1992, Engineer
Naval Research Laboratory
Designed flight hardware/software and ground support equipment for satellite instruments which include Remote Atmospheric/Ionospheric Detection System (RAIDS) and Special Sensor Ultraviolet Limb Imager (SSULI).

Jan. 1984-Oct. 1989, Undergraduate Research Assistant
Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics
(formerly Laboratory for Plasma and Fusion Energy Research)
University of MD at College Park
Designed instrumentation electronics for automated data acquisition of Electron Beam Transport Experiment (EBTE). Detectors include low light level CCD camera digitized in real time by custom hardware.
