John enjoys solving complex problems using a creative and logical approach.
John earned his bachelor’s degree in physics from SUNY Oswego in upstate New York. He went on to get his Ph.D. in Nanoscale Science and Engineering from the University at Albany where he studied electron transport properties through thin metal films and across metal-semiconductor interfaces. As a postdoc at Northwestern University, John researched methods of functionalizing graphene with organic molecules.
John put his data analytics and problem-solving skills to work when he moseyed down to Houston, Texas and joined Halliburton. He began as a Surface Microseismic Data Analysist, but quickly recognized bottlenecks in the workflow and independently developed quality control and automation software that ultimately improved process efficiencies and increased project turnaround. He later advanced to the Fiber Optics Data Analytics Team where he helped develop new processes to optimize downhole well performance.
Outside of work, John describes himself as a hobbyist. His hobbies include hydroponic gardening, woodworking, cooking, and investing. And on the weekends he can be found shopping at estate sales.
