Sr. Systems Engineer
I Integrate real time monitoring systems for the nuclear industry. This includes, configuring complicated redundant servers, network switches, and Domain controllers. We utilize an nuclear rated data acquisition system (DAS). These systems are used by the nuclear reactor operators to gain better efficiencies out of the plant, and to ensure that safety functions that are used by the nuclear standards are met. I built an automated test fixture that reduced the testing time of these very complex systems, while also increasing the number of tests and quality of the tests.
