Andrew has been working at GE Research for four years in the field of mechanical design with a focus on bearing technology. He received his Ph.D from Purdue University in 2014 in Engineering Tribology and joined GE working on X-ray tube liquid metal bearings and polycrystallyn diamond bearings for oil and gas applications.
Since then he's branched out to work on thermal and mechanical analysis for X-ray tube and Neutron source targets, X-ray tube cathode design, combustion test rig design, and hybrid aviation electric machines.
I enjoy working on such a wide range of topics and products. From jet engines to X-ray tubes, each day offers new chances to learn from those around me and contribute to GE’s longtime mission of innovation.
