An accomplished materials scientist with decades of experience in the field, Dr. Carbonara was originally a chemistry major at the University of Pittsburgh. He worked at the Mellon Institute part-time and the man he was working for, Thaddeus Nazolski, was a well-known materials scientist who advised Mr. Carbonara to pursue materials science instead of chemistry. Dr. Carbonara began taking courses part time at Carnegie Tech which increased his desire to pursue materials science. He earned a Bachelor of Science in physics from the University of Pittsburgh, worked as a NASA trainee for the University of Cincinnati before assuming the role of research scientist for the Battelle Memorial Institute in Columbus, OH, from 1968 to 1977, during which time he earned a PhD in materials science from the University of Cincinnati in 1970. Dr. Carbonara then worked as an associate manager for the Battelle Memorial Institute from 1977 to 1988 and consulted for the Battelle Development Corporation from 1983 to 1987 before taking his talents to SEA Ltd., where he remains today.
In 1988, Dr. Carbonara joined SEA Ltd., a forensic consulting company. He worked as a group manager from 1988 to 1998 before occupying his current role of senior analyst with the organization. In addition to these accomplishments, Dr. Carbonara worked as an editor for “Surface Analysis Techniques” in 1976, “Casting of Near Net Shape Products” in 1988 and is a patentee in the field of materials science. He has served on the board of directors of the American Heart Association for both the Ohio Valley affiliate and the national board of directors and holds membership with the American Society of Metals International, Phi Eta Sigma and Phi Lambda Upsilon. Dr. Carbonara enjoys working and continues forging ahead day after day and though retirement is near, would like to become involved with volunteering because he loves helping young people and considers the highlight of his career to be helping others solve problems.
