Subsequent to earning a BS degree in Physics (1983) from Denison University, Dr. Kimmerle earned a full academic scholarship to Columbia University in New York where he completed his Masters Degree (1985) and a Ph.D. (1987) in Materials Science and Metallurgical Engineering. During the following years while in the employ of Babcock & Wilcox as a research scientist, Dr. Kimmerle was awarded several US patents for use in Nuclear Power Generation. A substantial portion of the work completed at Babcock and Wilcox was Nuclear Navy security clearance related (both DOE & DOD). Dr. Kimmerle has authored numerous technical publications and has presented a variety of technical talks to professional societies and academic institutions.
Dr. Kimmerle and the team are very excited to be involved in over 60 different charitable organizations including: American Red Cross, School of Autism, United Way, and JDRF.
