Bryan received his B.A.Sc. (Honours) in Electrical Engineering with a Minor in Mathematics from the University of Windsor in August 2011.
Controls Engineering Internship DataRealm Inc., Windsor, Ontario, September 2009 – April 2010
Synopsis: Junior member of a 15 person team of electrical engineers and technologists working under the direction of a registered professional engineer on a multi-million dollar project involving the upgrade of outdated Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC’s) and Human Machine Interfaces (HMI’s) for automated industrial production stations in several automotive engine and transmission assembly plants across North America.
Bryan has been working at CHARGE as lead researcher of Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) via Strongly Coupled Resonant Magnetic Induction (SCRMI) since September of the same year. For his final project in the undergrad undergraduate program, he successfully designed and built a small scale WPT system capable of transferring approximately .5 Watts of power across an 8 inch air gap with 92% efficiency from source resonator to capture resonator. His design was based on a mechanism discovered by a team of MIT physicists in 2006. Bryan has been added to the CHARGE research team in order to help launch the first research program and facility in Canada dedicated to the research and development of WPT for electric vehicle (EV) charging applications.
