I have 30 years of experience, and specialize in the field of metallurgical engineering with specific knowledge in the areas of failure analysis, fracture analysis and welding. I have published on such topics as high temperature alloys, mechanical properties and heat treatment. I have testified on deposition on weld failure, court appearance on composite pipe. I have a very broad and practical background in machining and welding. I have taught and designed classes in metallurgy and failure analysis for operational people. This coupled with my technical experience allows me to explain complex issues in simple and understandable terms.
