About the speakerDr. Gernant E. Maurer is a seasoned technology professional with 35 years of industry experience. The positions that he has held range from research and development engineer to corporate technology officer at a billion dollar specialty alloy corporation. He has contributed and led many successful specialty alloy products, as well as process developments that have been implemented in numerous markets. His business development experiences include creating profitable new businesses and being part of a corporate management team that formulated strategic plans in response to changing economic conditions. Professional activities include active leadership roles in international symposium committees and industrial task forces to solve industry wide problems.
Gern's technical expertise has evolved from the development of numerous new product activities in areas that have applications in aerospace, energy, industrial, consumer, and medical markets. The research efforts that he has directed have taken full advantage of computational modeling to streamline alloy development and process improvements. In many instances he has implemented powder metallurgy solutions to solve challenging problems that face traditional cast-and-wrought processing of highly alloyed specialty materials. All of these activities have demanded that online data resources and technical information are utilized to the fullest.
One of the most notable aspects of his career has been the management and development of technology personnel in both R&D and manufacturing technology roles. Many material engineers that he has hired and has worked with have risen to prominent technical positions in many companies.
Dr. Maurer received his B.E.S. from The Johns Hopkins University and his Ph.D. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. An active member of ASM, Dr. Maurer has served and led numerous committees, councils and chapters including service on the Awards Policy Committee, Technical Programming Board, the Mohawk Valley Chapter as an Executive Committee member, vice chair and chair and is currently a senior advisor to the Lehigh Valley Chapter.
