Kevin Smith’s professional experience has focused on using his broad training in physics and computer science to solve diverse and challenging problems in science, engineering, and business. He has worked on a wide variety of projects including the development of software tools to support environmental restoration activities, development of a large-scale, web-based database in support of well rehabilitation operations, the founding of a company and development of custom software to model the startup time of hydrogen fuel cells, and the discovery of novel ways to efficiently damp spin waves in magnetic media. He has developed, from the ground-up, software ranging from technical, numerical solvers to front-end GUIs in a number of languages including C, C++, and Python. With his background in experimental physics, he brings a “big-picture” perspective to technical work and is skilled at finding solutions to unusual problems that cannot be solved with commonly available methods or tools.
