Consultant, Kevin Kennedy Associates, Inc.

Provides consulting expertise in areas of electric power transmission, materials and science engineering, and metallurgical engineering.


Senior Specialist, technology company, High Capacity Conductor, Electrical Markets Division- St. Paul, MN

Key contributor to winning several purchase orders for around $15M for overhead power transmission reconductoring with company conductor. Provided optimal Conductors, accessories designs. Developed eddy current sensor to monitor conductor wire defects during manufacturing. Built non-destructive evaluation laboratory, (Ultrasonic, Acoustic emission, Electromagnetic) and provided detailed analysis of various components and part. Was a key member of the team in a Department of Energy multi- year contract for upgrading over head power transmission capacity.


Specialist: Materials Division, technology company, St. Paul, MN

Successfully modeled and simulated casting of net shape metal matrix composite parts for both aerospace and automotive applications, conducted development and processing of net shape castings with composite insert reinforcement and composite wire for conductors, successfully implemented Six Sigma to composite wire manufacturing. Applied Non- Destructive Technology to inspect and evaluate Metal- Matrix Composites.


Manager, Analytical and Testing, Norton Company, Advanced Ceramics, Northboro, MA

Built and ran state of the art characterization, analysis, and testing facility (9 laboratories) – equipped the facility with technical staff and provided quality service to many departments at Norton Company. Was one of three key principal investigators awarded a Department of Energy multi- year contract on “Advanced Ceramics for Heat Engine Components”.


Project Engineer and Member of Technical Staff, Bendix Corporation Central Research Labs, and Corporation Advanced Technology Center, Southfield, MI, and Columbia, MD

Eliminated distortion of metal parts during stamping operation that resulted in reduction of product scrap. Analyzed residual stresses in stamped parts and implemented a relief technique that resulted in producing non deformed electrical contact/ connectors parts. Improved strength of Cu- Be and Fe- V alloys using thermo-mechanical processing. Developed and demonstrated a thin film coating method for fluidized metal power; the coating reduced inter-particle friction and set up the stage for molding and fabrication of net shape parts.


Lecturer, Fairleigh Dickenson University, Madison, NJ

Taught Mathematics and Physics classes and setup laboratory experiments.


Assistant Professor, College of Engineering, University of Cairo, Egypt

Taught engineering and materials classes and supervised senior class projects.


Research Associate, University of Erlangen/ Nurnberg, Germany

Contributed to winning a contract for optimizing the properties of high strength low alloy steels from the German Iron & Steel Inst. and achieved higher strength and structure thermodynamic stability.


Post Doctor Fellow, Max Planck Inst, Stuttgart, Germany

Contributed to improving and understanding the low- temperature mechanical behavior of some copper alloys.
