Title: Efficient Modeling and Simulation of Biological Warfare Using Innovative Design of Experiments Methods


Tom joined the Modeling, Simulation & Analysis Team at Edgewood Chemical Biological Center in June of 2005 after spending 20+ years in the private sector. In 1999 he started Peak Process, LLC a consulting company providing services primarily to pharmaceutical and biotech clients in the use of Design of Experiments (DOE) methods to model and optimize new drug development. In 1987 Tom became a partner in ECHIP, Inc., the first company to provide statistical experimental design software on a PC. In his 12 years as Technical Director he taught more than 200 short courses to engineers and scientists on the use of DOE methods. In 1983 he became a principal engineer with Honeywell, Inc. where he first worked at the Corporate Technology Center for 2 years developing thin-film electro-luminescent (TFEL) flat panel displays. After transitioning the technology to a manufacturing site he spent his last year at Honeywell in the Advanced Technology Group consulting across corporate divisions on the use of DOE methods to optimize a wide variety of processes and products, including; sensors for medical, automotive, and aerospace markets. After receiving his PhD in physics from the University of Delaware Tom did post-doctoral research on amorphous-silicon solar cells at the Institute of Energy Conversion.
