Dr. Roderick's background is in experimental physics specializing in magnetic systems, microscopic mechanics, and optics. At Exponent, he assists clients with a variety of applications by drawing from his extensive experience working with magnetic materials and electronic systems. He has worked with physics, biology, and engineering labs and developed an array of skills involving electronic device analysis and repair, video and image editing, CAD, and data analysis.

Dr. Roderick received his Ph.D. in Physics from The Ohio State University. His research focused on the control and use of microscopic magnetic systems. Using microscopic machines built with DNA and controlled with magnetic microbeads, he investigated magnetic phenomena and molecular forces. Additionally, he led a team in the construction of a system that tracked microscopic magnetic objects and controlled their movement in real time. As part of this dissertation work, he developed programs for analysis in MATLAB and neural network tracking algorithms in Python and C# and built multiple unique microscope systems.
