  1. A.    Personal Statement

 

My goal is to maintain instrument quality and integrity.  This includes monitoring, preventive maintenance, diagnoses and repairs. Skills learned from previous employment at Bruker, General Electric NMR and over the years, has allowed me to maintain and troubleshoot our instruments. In addition, I have moved spectrometers and magnets (300&500 MHz), which includes  de-energizing,  installing magnet shipping restraints, reassembling, aligning magnet, energizing and reinstalling the spectrometer.

The Duke NMR Center has provided me with challenges and excellent work environment with great support from Drs.Tony Ribeiro, Ron Venters and Len Spicer.
