IPC COMMUNITY 46 FALL 2023 My passion for STEM, mento- ring, and our electronics indus- try is both professional and per- sonal. I'm a scientist and appli- cation engineer at Dow Chem- ical, as well as an IPC standards committee leader and a mentor for burgeoning engineers. Most importantly, my personal life revolves around helping kids become involved in STEM activ- ities, so when I saw an opportu- nity to be a mentor for my son's middle school robotics pro- gram, I couldn't pass it up. Within IPC, my focus is on the protective materials for PCBA. This leverages my electrical engineering (EE) background in some aspects of dielectric strength and electrochemical migration. That bridge between material science and electri- cal performance gives me an opportunity to learn from a broad range of industry experts. I'm now able to pay that knowl- edge forward through mento- ring opportunities with IPC's Emerging Engineering program, the STEM events at IPC APEX EXPO, and FIRST Robotics.
