Mark D. Russell, Ph.D., P.E.
Chief Engineer and Consulting Engineer
About the time that Dr. Russell was learning how to tie his own shoes, he also began learning how to use tools and figure out how things work by watching his father repair the family’s car, a gold Buick Skylark.
Dr. Russell’s interest in tools and figuring out how things work continued to grow, and so it was natural that he went on to pursue training as a mechanical engineer.
Dr. Russell provides consulting in the areas of mechanical systems, manufacturing processes, root cause investigation and analysis of mechanical damage to equipment, components, and materials, including fracture analysis and failure analysis. Prior to joining ED&T in 2011, he worked in both academic and industrial research. He also has experience in manufacturing systems and quality assurance.
When not on the job, Dr. Russell enjoys running, watching baseball, backpacking, and piloting his airplane. Personal aircraft is probably more than a just hobby, as he is currently building his next plane.
Dr. Russell is a licensed engineer in the following states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wyoming.
