Dr. Myers is a physicist and electrical engineer with more than two decades of experience in electronic systems and technology. He has expertise in fields such as battery & power electronics, magnetic hard drives, nano/micromechanical systems (NEMS/MEMS), and chemical & biological sensor systems.

Dr. Myers has led problem-solving efforts involving consumer, medical, and industrial electronics, including failure analyses of mobile power circuits using lithium-ion batteries and independent risk & reliability assessments of client product designs. 

Dr. Myers has experience with a range of scientific technologies and techniques, including the following: chemical identification and analysis using tools such as gas chromatographs (GC) and scanning electron microscopes (SEM), micro & nanofabrication of metallic and semiconductor electronics and sensors, and computer data analysis, modeling and simulation.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Myers worked at Western Digital as a R&D scientist on advanced magnetic hard drive recording technologies. He has also worked at the California Institute of Technology as a senior scientist where he led a DARPA-funded effort to develop miniaturized gas analyzers using (NEMS) resonators, for real-time chemical warfare agent detection. For his Ph.D. work at Cornell University, Dr. Myers performed the first systematic study of nanoscale magnetic bit reversal by a spin-polarized current, which enables new kinds of high-speed and high-density computer memories.
