Supervised the renovation of the mezzanine area (Room 111A) in the Fluor Daniel Building changing it from a storage area into an Undergraduate student laboratory

Instrumental in starting a student shop in Cook Laboratory

In 1995 we outsourced most of our machine work. I hired the proper personnel, purchased new equipment and now the shop does 99% or our machine work in-house

Customer service had always been a top priority. I am very proud of our track record as a support shop. Over the last 22 years, we have had very few complaints and when we have had an issue we worked hard to resolve it quickly and to the Professor or Students satisfaction
