I have twelve years of experience in engineering, scientific study, research, statistics, and writing for many companies as a consultant, employee, and independent business owner. My consulting and work experience include mathematical modeling, scientific and engineering research studies, process engineering, and technical and scientific writing. Some of the companies that I have worked with in the past as a consultant or contractor include Draper Laboratory, BCC Research, Lynntech, McGraw-Hill, Elsevier Science, and Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies. I had my own company for about 5 years called Clean Fuel Cell Energy. We manufactured several products primarily for Universities around the world. The products included fuel cell stacks, fuel cell materials (electrodes), and microbial fuel cell materials. I have authored several titles including 'Designing and Building Fuel Cells' (McGraw-Hill, 2007) and 'PEM Fuel Cell Modeling and Simulation Using MATLAB'(Elsevier Science, 2008). When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my son and husband. I also enjoy writing, and have recently aquired a new writing hobby - blogging. I write about various engineering topics on my blog www.engineeringgirl.com.
My education includes a B.S. in Chemical Engineering, M.S. in Chemical Engineering, and Ph.D. Electrical Engineering.
My thesis and dissertation focused on mathematical modeling (heat transfer, mass tranfer, kinetics,and thermodynamics).
- I am willing to be contacted by educators for possible speaking engagements in schools or in after school programs or summer camps.
