Marc Ramsey, PhD

Dr. Ramsey received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Vanderbilt University. He specializes in acoustics, multi-phase and compressible flows, optics, and high speed diagnostics. Prior to his graduate studies, he spent several years at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM working on high energy density physics facilities such as the Z-Machine and Z-Beamlet. Afterwards, he moved on to Creare, an engineering R&D firm in Hanover NH, where he directed numerous technology development programs. A few of his past projects are summarized here. Dr. Ramsey formed RAPA Technologies in order to focus on developing practical technologies for real-world commercial applications.
