Used External and physical evidence to reconstruct accidents.
Registered Professional Engineer Mechanical Engineering
Chancellor’s Fellowship at UCLA
Qualified and listed as an expert witness by the Los Angeles superior court
1993 to Present
EXPERT WITNESS in Reconstructing hundreds of vehicular accidents by using external and physical evidence. Also evaluated design defects that caused work related injuries Correlated black-box readings in vehicles with structural damages in vehicles and injuries to drivers and passengers. Worked on cases for defense and plaintiff attorneys. For example , I worked on cases with attorneys who represented Mercedes and attorneys who sued Mercedes. Designed and developed a microprocessor-based self-calibrated liquid sensor with accurate and fast response time measurement of liquid level, temperature and conductivity. This sensor can be used in vehicles to monitor the quantity and quality of automotive fluids like Diesel , engine oil , coolant etc. .
Tested prototypes of this sensor with engine oil, fuel, coolant, Diesel and multi-layered liquids like oil on water.
Developed and wrote a C program for an algorithm to process the signal from such liquid sensor
Coordinated activities between firmware engineers and electronic circuit designers for very low level signals.
For this sensor searched and selected materials that are chemically inert, does not absorb liquid, work at high temperature as well as meet cost requirements.
coordinated engineering efforts to use this technology to monitor and control the temperature of ink for printing future newspapers.
Thermodisc (subsidiary of Emerson Electric)
Designed, developed and provided guidelines for testing a version of this sensor for measuring oil level in a foamy refrigeration compressors.
Designed and provided prototypes of this microprocessor-based sensor with low power and low-level signal to Kysor/Medallion
Lee/Maatuk Engineering 1988-1992
Partner at Lee/Maatuk Engineer owner of a patent on using capacitive technology to measure continuous liquid level.
Various Clients 1978-1988
worked with defense and plaintiff attorneys as well as insurance companies in reconstructing accidents and evaluating product liability
Consultant to many companies including Magnavox, Circle Seal, TRW, Jet Propulsion Lab, HR Textron, Hydro-Aire, Mercedes Benz, Rocketdyne, Rockwell
Project Management responsibilities which required coordinating activities and providing guidelines to mechanical, software and electronic engineering Design, Analysis, Testing and manufacturing departments.
Hired technical personnel to develop products within a time schedule and at a fixed-price.
Evaluated and helped productize engineering alternatives to General Managers, Directors of Engineering and Program Managers.
Evaluated product liability for plaintiff and defense attorneys.
Approved by the Los Angeles County Court as an Expert Witness.
