Dr. Kattamis is an electrical engineer with an extensive background in failure analysis and forensic engineering. He performs root cause analyses (RCA) relating to failures and fires in electrical systems ranging from semiconductor devices and consumer electronics to power generation, transmission and distribution equipment. He also performs analyses related to electrical injury including arc flash and electric shock.  

Dr. Kattamis has also led large-scale condition assessments of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems following natural disasters. He has an in depth knowledge of relevant electrical codes and standards including those of the IEC, IEEE, NEC, NESC, NFPA, OSHA, and UL.

Dr. Kattamis has expertise in the design, fabrication, and failure analysis of semiconductor devices including thin-film electronics, flexible electronics, memories, LEDs, LCDs, AMOLEDs, integrated circuits, and printed circuit boards. Dr. Kattamis is also has experience in investigating and providing testimony in intellectual property matters.

Dr. Kattamis received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. His research focused on large-area flexible electronics including the design, fabrication and characterization of TFT display backplanes for electrophoretic displays and AMOLEDs on metal foils and polymer substrates. This included significant work in thin-film mechanics. His fabrication experience includes plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition, reactive-ion etching, sputter deposition, wet chemical processing, and photolithography.

Prior to his Ph.D., Dr. Kattamis worked at General Electric Industrial Systems, where he designed and implemented electronic trip units and current sensing systems for metering and switchgear. This included analog electronics design, modeling, and firmware coding.
