This expert has specific experience in the automotive and trucking industry designing suspension components, including axels, beams, bushings and brakes. Besides being a Mechanical Engineer, this expert is also a Patent Agent, giving added insight into the world of patents. This expert has served as a consultant/expert in patent infringement cases involving pintle hitches, air suspension systems, air disc brake mechanisms, motorized scooter suspensions, rebar support bolsters, spinning rims (i.e., "wheel spinners"), and actuator devices found on vehicle transporters. This expert has a strong understanding of manufacturing processes including stamping, casting, forging and molding. This expert has been a Program Director for Mechanical Engineering Technology. This expert's earlier focus on Suspension Technology for heavy trucks gives this expert insight into heavy equipment and its requirements for retrofitted components.
This expert holds a PhD in Materials Engineering and serves as a Senior Engineer for a highly sought-after technical consultancy. Specializing in physical and process metallurgy, quality control systems and manufacturing processes, this expert's doctoral dissertation examined combustion processes in an electric arc furnace (EAF) as well as steel oxidation at elevated temperatures. As process metallurgy manager at a steel company, this expert was a member of a capital investment committee that, in addition to other projects, investigated the feasibility of oxygen injection in the EAF. While there, EQS had a 50tonne eccentric bottom tap (EBT) EAF as well as two ladle furnaces, a vacuum degassing unit and calcium injection system. EQS produced ingots (from 10" diameter to 52" diameter) used by the forging industry of carbon and alloy steel, including tool steels and ferritic/martensitic stainless steels. As process metallurgy manager this expert was responsible for understanding and controlling 2513g the melting, refining and casting processes. Some of this expert's additional responsibilities included developing energy balance for the EAF, the control of slag chemistry with respect to slag foaming and carbon, recovery of alloying elements from different scrap sources and the development of materials database to link product defects with specific steelmaking processes. In addition to deposition testimonies, this expert manages projects and provides litigation support (including review and analysis of documents, indexing depositions, preparation of cross examination questions, preparation of direct testimony, technical research) for colleagues. These have included several multimillion dollar arbitration and litigation matters.
This expert obtained a diploma in chemical engineering, an M.A.Sc. in chemical engineering and a Ph.D. in chemical engineering. This expert is a professor in the department of chemical and biological engineering. This expert's main research interests are in the area of polymer rheology, polymer processing and surface science with emphasis on superhydrophobic/superoleophobic surfaces. This expert's specialty is using the science of applied rheology principles to solve practical problems in polymer processing including film extrusion, blow molding, film blowing, film casting and many other polymer processing operations. Mechanical properties of polymeric products and how these are related to their molecular structure and rheology are also themes of this expert's research interests. This expert has published more than 200 referred journal papers, 102 papers in conference proceedings, 161 conference presentations, three patents and one book on polymer processing instabilities. While this expert has been involved in patent-related litigations as an expert, writing reports and serving as an inside consultant, this expert has not had the opportunity to be deposed or testify.
