gained valuable lab experience while working as a technician, a technologist and a graduate research assistant from 1995-2000,
successfully completing development projects of several system subcomponents. From 2000-2001, Pam, serving as project manager
at Scientific Materials Corporation, exceeded goals of a Manufacturing Technology Project developing monoblock lasers. Since
2001, Pam has been President of FieldMetrics Inc., previously CPY Consulting, which develops and manufactures sensors and
instrumentation for power utility applications. She has 5 patents pending and one publication. Pam is a member of the IEEE.
Chris Yakymyshyn, V.P. Technology
Chris Yakymyshyn received a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University in 1989. While at GE Corporate Research
and Development, he worked on electro-optic sensors, optical ultrasound and micromachining. He joined ABB in 1993 where he
developed optical voltage and current sensors for power utility applications, and oversaw field trial installations. From
1997-2001, Dr. Yakymyshyn was a professor at Montana State University, where he developed optical sensors for particle accelerators,
and consulted for several companies developing optical sensors for utility applications. Since 2001, Dr. Yakymyshyn has been
with CPY Consulting Inc. dba FieldMetrics where he develops and manufactures sensors and instrumentation for power utility
applications. Dr. Yakymyshyn has 19 U.S. patents, 13 foreign patents and 54 publications/ presentations. He twice received
honorable mention in the Eta Kappa Nu Outstanding Young Electrical Engineer of the Year award, the Cornell Sage Fellowship,
and the NSERC, Sir James Lougheed and Alberta Achievement Awards from Canada. He was the Mortar Board Professor of the Month
at Montana State University in 1997 and 2000, and received two MSU Awards for Excellence in 2002. He is a senior member of
the IEEE and a member of the Optical Society of America.
Michael Brubaker, V.P. Engineering
Mike Brubaker received a BS in Electrical Engineering (1989) from the University of Colorado followed
by an MS (1990) and PhD (1995) in Electric Power Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He joined the Materials
and Process Center at the ABB Transmission Technology Institute (now Electrical Technology Institute) in 1993. While at
ABB, he was responsible for the dielectric design and type testing of optical voltage sensors and other new products. Dr.
Brubaker joined the staff of the Dynamic Experimentation Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1997. He was the team
leader for the development, testing, fabrication and calibration of electro-optic sensors for electron beam and pulsed power
monitoring on the DARHT II accelerator. Dr. Brubaker left Los Alamos in 2001 to become an independent consultant. He joined
CPY Consulting dba FieldMetrics in 2003 and is presently working on next generation technologies for instrumentation of the
power grid. Dr. Brubaker has more than 20 publications, 5 US patents and 3 foreign patents.
