Tripodics Computing Services:
Author of numerous technical papers and industry analysis reports, including in-depth comparisons of Unix operating systems, fault-tolerant and high-availability platforms, processor migration strategies, SQL database vendors, vendor policies for OS modification.
Over 30 years of college teaching experience: programming languages, software and website development, computer architecture, operating systems, algorithm design, theory, other topics. (Adjunct Professorships also at Polytechnic University, Briarcliffe College, The Gibbs School.)
Brookhaven National Laboratory, Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (1991-99)
Advanced Computer Analyst. - Software architecture, design, implementation of distributed accelerator control system (VxWorks, Unix RPC, C++). Also implemented embedded firmware (C, i960 assembler) for real-time control of magnet power supplies, instrumentation, other equipment. Responsible for systems integration of over 100 networked Front-End Computers (VME-bus MC68040 and 603e) and web-based testing (HTML, Java, and CGI Perlscripts). Also responsible for Software Quality Assurance programs; wrote and implemented departmental SQA standards.
Principal Engineer / Software Deputy
Also completed special assignments for Corporate Technology office, including:
Successfully integrated computer usage and networks across divisions of the company, selected and managed new computer and network installations (microVAX, Sun, ethernet, PACX, CAD/CAM), and conducted C & Unix training programs for over 50 software, electrical, mechanical, and robotic engineers under my technical direction. Devised and instituted corporate standards and methodologies for software development, re-use, design-capture, QA, Configuration Management, CASE tools.
Developed and brought to market an Inventory Control System, a 68020-based Unix system, a Z80-based CP/M product, and an 8088-based Personal Computer "clone" (including ROM BIOS).
Managed all software efforts in diverse areas, including porous media simulations, meteorological analysis, environmental and medical effects of pollutants, battlefield simulations, pharmaceutical database for drug interaction, legal data retrieval, and video arcade graphics.
Engaged by Microsoft to solve critical Fortran and Pascal compiler problems, for what later became the IBM personal computer. Other clients included U. S. Army White Sands Missle Range (probabilistic modeling of atmospheric turbulence), Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, NY State Organized Crime Task Force, Fabricated Plastics (NJ), Cyberchron Systems (Los Angeles, CA), Microwave Power Devices, MA/COMM, American Science.
During 15 years of progressively responsible staff positions in the Applied Mathematics Dept., completed projects for every scientific department plus assignments at CERN, Argonne, Los Alamos, and other national labs. Work included scientific programming, modeling (molecular structure, nuclear reactors, acid rain), language compilers, operating system internals and drivers, real-time process control, data collection and reduction. Established and supervised Help Desk and User Support Services.
Performed crystallographic structure determinations; implemented several computational programs in Fortran and assembler. Responsible for converting all crystallographic software from Fortran II to IV.
