James Evans, PhD

Prof. James W. Evans is the P. Malozemoff Professor Emeritus in the Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. Over thirty students have earned the Ph.D. in his research group and the same number have completed the M.S. degree. Five of the former Ph.D. students are on the faculty of major universities in the US and abroad. His awards include the Champion H. Mathewson Award of TMS (The Minerals, Metals and Materials Soc.), the James Douglas Gold Metal of A.I.M.E and the Brimacombe Award ($25k Canadian for “…a single or sustained contribution to materials process engineering deemed outstanding.”). His recent research has focused on electrochemistry, particularly as applied to materials production and energy storage. He has published approximately 200 papers in refereed archival journals (plus 120 other publications), co-authored three books and is a co-inventor on eight issued patents.

IMG_3608_cmPaul Wright, PhD

Paul Wright’s experience is in industrial metallurgy, automation, robotics, machine tool technology, CAD/CAM, sensors, and wireless systems. For the Westinghouse Corp. in the late-1970s, his team installed an automated manufacturing cell for CNC controlled hot-forging that comprised two load/unload robots, and a computer vision system for part inspection. Throughout the 1980s, with machine tool companies such as Cincinnati- Milacron and Hurco, he created Intelligent Machining Workstations (IMWs) again comprising sensor based robots, part inspection systems and sensor based fixturing. Throughout the 1990s he worked with Ford Motor Company, and with DARPA and NSF grants to develop open-architecture machine tool controllers for integrated manufacturing and Internet-based CAD/CAM systems. In recent years, he has focused on the development of wireless systems for energy management, first responder applications, and manufacturing.
