Area of Expertise
Mr. Mitchell worked as a contractor for EPA for seven years before becoming a federal employee in 1999. He works in TSB's electronics shop where he is an Information Transfer (IT) specialist. One of his duties is to assist with APPCD's desk-top computer support and networking, and this duty often involves providing solutions to difficult hardware problems. William also designs, builds, and maintains comprehensive data acquisition and data processing systems for APPCD's research programs. In this capacity, he designs, constructs, installs, and troubleshoots signal conditioning and sensor equipment to computer interface circuits. Due to the varied nature of APPCD's research projects, William has had the opportunity to design unique circuits, circuit boards, and electronic systems used in a broad range of research programs, including automation and remote control, reactor furnaces, plume sampling, particulate matter sampling, ignition measurement and control, and many others.
William grew up in the suburb of an Ohio steel town. He attended Youngstown State University but transferred to Ohio State University during his freshman year. At Ohio State, he was employed in the High Energy Physics Department's electronics laboratory. He worked for eight years in physics research at Ohio State, initially as a student assistant, then as a full faculty member.
