  • (1992-2000) Research Scientist - U.S. leader of the polymerization expertise center. Discovered and introduced technologies with impact on catalysis, high temperature stabilization, silicone-organics copolymers and IPN's, RT cure and inhibition, high temperature vulcanization, surface grafting, hydrolysis of chlorosilanes, new process for production of organofunctional polysiloxanes, and new polymerization processes. These contributions were incorporated into commercial silicone elastomers, resins and fluids products
  • (1986-1992) Senior Research Specialist - Organized and supervised a research group dealing with hydrogel materials. Developed a "Technology Research" methodology as a communication tool between research and marketing. Established world reputation in proprietary tough hydrogels for extrusion, coating, foams, sub-micron particles and medical devices.
  • (1978 - 1985) Technical leader of the water-base expertise center group in Dow Corning R&D.
