WORK EXPERIENCE:

 Attending Orthopaedic Surgeon
 Tristate Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine                                                                         Aug. 00’ to Present

  Department of Orthopaedic Surgery – Mercy, Alliance, Trihealth, and Highland District Hospitals.
   • Partner in a 9 man general & sports orthopaedic practice servicing Cincinnati, OH and surrounding community.
   • Perform approximately 400 surgical cases/yr and treat approximately 7500 clinic patients/yr. Areas of interest include
   fracture care, reconstructive and joint replacement surgery, as well as arthroscopy of the knee, shoulder, ankle, & wrist,
   Special interest in osteoporosis prevention & treatment.
   • Presented one-hour presentation entitled “Osteoporosis An Orthopaedist Persepctive: What You and Our Nation’s
   Astronauts may have in Common”. Presentation single-out as one of the best given at local orthopaedic conference.
   • Analyzed the potential risk for a fracture after a long-duration spaceflight to Mars for several orbital trajectory scenarios
   using osteoporosis data as a risk-assessment model. Results presented at 73rd Annual Aerospace Medical Association
   meeting, May 02, in Montreal, and at the International Conference in Aerospace Medicine (ICASM) meeting, September
   02, in Sidney.

 Chief Resident - Orthopaedic Surgery (PGY-5)
 University of North Carolina (UNC) Memorial Hospital                                                           Jun. 95’ to Aug. 00’

  Department of Orthopaedic Surgery - UNC School of Medicine at Chapel Hill.
   • Completed rotations in Trauma, Sports Medicine, Bone and Soft Tissue Tumor, Total Joint Replacement, Spine, and Pediatric
   Orthopaedic surgery.
   • Supervised and instructed junior orthopaedic residents and medical students in the diagnosis, nonsurgical, and surgical
   treatment of orthopaedic injuries.
   • Instructed 32 second year medical students in musculoskeletal histology, histopathology, radiology, and general clinical exam
   as part of Musculoskeletal Basic Science Course.
   • Developed, proposed, and implemented a research project designed to investigate the influence of mechanical “strain rate” on
   osteoblast gap junction and bone mineralization mRNA expression. Bone mineralization and gap junction markers increased with
   increasing strain rate suggesting that the “rate” at which strain is applied may be a stimulus for bone remodeling and cell to cell
   communication. Results presented at the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) meeting, February 1, 1999.
   • Analyzed the potential risk & suggested possible countermeasure for a fracture after a long-duration spaceflight using
   osteoporosis data as a risk-assessment model. Results presented at 70th Annual Aerospace Medical Association meeting, May 99.
   • Presented six one-hour presentations at Wake Medical Center: Potential Risk for Fracture after a Long Duration Spaceflight,
   Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Hand Infections, Rheumatoid Arthritis of the Hand, Osteoporosis Risk Factors & Diagnostic
   Modalities, and Osteoporosis Treatment Alternatives. Osteoporosis presentations singled-out as one of the best Grand Round
   presentations given at Wake Medical Center.
   • Completed six week internship rotations in gastrointestinal, tumor, transplant, cardiothoracic, orthopaedic, otolaryngologic,
   plastic, and neuro-, surgery in addition to rotations in the Burn Unit and Emergency Room.

  Columbus Payload Operations & Crew Activities Office - European Space Agency (Aug. 90’ to Aug. 92’)
   • Initiated, priced, proposed, and managed the implementation & execution of the first contract between Booz • Allen and the
   European Space Agency (ESA). Fulfilled contract responsibilities on-site in the Netherlands.

                                                                page -1-

    • Developed astronaut operation, utilization, & training concepts for the operation of on-board systems and experiments within
    ESA’s Attached Payload Module (APM), one of three laboratory modules to be part of the Space Station Freedom (SSF). [The
    Space Station is a multi-national, multi-laboratory research facility dedicated to evaluating the effects of microgravity on
    materials, pharmaceuticals, and the human body.]
    • Evaluated the APM’s current design and supporting ground infrastructure to ensure that all crew operations & training concepts
    were being met. This task required participating in APM hardware/software, 0 g, and neutral buoyancy simulations, as well as
    interviewing former ESA, NASA, and Soviet astronauts and flight control personnel.
    • Synthesized & documented concepts and results in a 50 page report entitled the “Crew Operations and Utilization Document ”.
    • Managed two engineering personnel during the execution of this contract.

   Space Operations Integration Division - Space Station Freedom Program Office (Aug. 87’ to Aug. 90’)
    • Analyzed & evaluated the Space Station’s design and supporting ground infrastructure to ensure that it is safe, effective, &
    “operator friendly”. This task required a thorough understanding of the technical feasibility of crew and flight controller
    operations as well as the ability to extrapolate future operations’ concepts from present and past space programs.
    • Specific areas of responsibility included robotic arm operations, flight safety & crew rescue operations, & training.
    • Effectively interacted with and persuaded a multi-national group with diverse interests, expectations, and technical
    understanding.
    • Managed and developed two major concept documents: (1) the Space Station Training Plan (SSTP) - - a 100+ page document
    which defined an integrated & cost-effective approach for training astronaut and flight controllers, the resources for which were
    scattered across several international sites & multiple NASA space centers; & (2) Space Station Remote Manipulator System
    Functional Criticality Study - - a 40+ page document which analyzed the potential for a safety-critical situation should the robotic
    arm fail.
    • Managed as many as five engineering personnel during the execution of this contract.

   Mission Operations & Data Systems Directorate - Goddard Space Flight Center (Oct. 86’ to Aug. 87’)
