About Patrick Neyman
For resume, c.v. or other professional information, please follow one of the links to the professional website for Patrick Neyman.
Dr. Patrick Neyman holds a Ph. D. in Macromolecular Science and Engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute, as well as an M. S. in Materials Science and Engineering and a B. S. in Physics, with a Mathematics Minor and a Computer Science concentration.
Currently, Dr. Neyman works in Silicon Valley as a Staff Product Development Engineer (Eng III) at Raychem Circuit Protection a division of Tyco Electronics. He develops novel products for circuit protection for devices ranging from Automotive to Battery to Surface Mount (SMT) consumer electronics protection
As part of his role, Dr. Neyman regularly communicates with overseas teams in France and China. To these ends, Dr. Neyman regularly uses language skills in French and is currently learning Mandarin.
In addition to his role in development of new products, Dr. Neyman has become an internal expert on Tin Whisker phenomena and mitigation, and sits on the technical committee of the Automotive Electronics Council, representing Tyco Electronics as an associate member.
Prior to that, Dr. Neyman worked as a Senior Process Development Engineer at Intel Corporation, developing lithographic and metrology techniques for the polysilicon gate layer of the then-not-yet-released mobile and desktop dual core processors.
If organic nanotechnology or organic electro-optic devices spark your interest, then you may be interested in Dr. Neyman's 6 years of research in thin-film organic devices, such as electro-optic phase modulators and switches, photovoltaics, electrochromics, piezo-electrics and LEDs. please go to the publications page or check out Dr. Neyman's Ph. D. Thesis which gives an comprehensive of the physics, structure and applications of ISAM (ionically self-assembled multilayer) films and CHISAM (covalent hybridized ISAM) films.
In his spare time, Patrick enjoys mountain biking, venturing outdoors and playing music. A repository of beautiful landscape photographs from around the country, many obtained with the help of his 4runner, is soon to come. Currently Patrick is learning classical guitar, but is well practiced in classical piano and enjoys the saxophone.
Giving back to the community has always been important to Patrick, including the following. While researching the internet for the Networked Infrastructure for Education project, he developed a website cataloging Physics applets as a public service. During his time at Virginia Tech, he volunteered for the outreach program to help teach Physics in rural high schools without an adequate Physics program. While in Oregon, Patrick volunteered his time at the local elementary school, which is under-funded and under-staffed, as are most Oregon schools.
