from Prairie View A&M and MSME from Georgia Tech. I married in July '92 and have two
sons (Nikolaus-4 and Mykell-2). I am currently a Senior Member of the Technical Staff at
Sandia National Laboratories. I am performing mechanical design and analysis for various
weapon-related components and systems. One of my more interesting projects is the Enhanced
Surveillance Program (ESP), which is focusing on extending the life of weapon components
in our enduring stockpile. (1/28/00)

graduate school in the field of medical imaging and did an internship at the FDA's Center
for Devices and Radiological Health. After receiving her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering
from Duke University in 1994, she worked in Tokyo, Japan where she collaborated with a
Japanese researcher, traveled, and attempted to learn the language. In 1992, she married
Abhi Kshirsagar, currently a medical resident at the University of North Carolina. She was

as an environmental engineer for a natural gas pipeline company in
Texas. I worked in Texas and Louisiana with that company for 6 years
before leaving to return to school. I graduated from Harvard with a
JD/MBA in 1999 and currently practice corporate law in New York city.
(ANS/Clemson) -- Graduated
summa cum laude from Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina
where he majored in Ceramic Engineering. At Clemson, Mr. Pope was named
the outstanding student in the College of Engineering in both his junior
and senior years. He received his masters degree in Materials Science
and Engineering from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois in
1992, publishing his thesis in The Journal of Materials Science.
Graduated with honors from Emory University where he was named a Robert
W. Woodruff Scholar and First Honor Graduate of his class. Following
graduation from law school in 1994, he clerked for Chief Judge Henry
Politz on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
Joined Moore & Van Allen, PLLC in Fall 1995 and concentrates in the
areas of bankruptcy, workouts, and trading of distressed debt.
(09/06/01) Fleeing engineering, I became a lawyer. I'm a partner
with Moore & Van Allen PLLC, a large firm in Charlotte, NC. I
represent banks (easy to do in Charlotte) in distressed credits. My
career does not require me to use any of my engineering training, but I
have no complaints. In 1998, I married another attorney at the firm and
we now have 2 kids and a black lab. I still have a passion for politics
and may direct my efforts that direction soon enough. Feel free to give
me a buzz if you are in the area.(01/04/02)
