Sarah Clark is an Associate Chemical Engineer at CTC in Dayton, Ohio. Her main responsibilities are providing project management and technical project support to various inorganic coating focused projects. Ms. Clark is subtask lead for the Dichromate Sealer Replacement Subtask of the Inorganic Finishing Technologies Task Order for the AFRL. She is responsible for providing budget management and technical planning, as well as leader- ship and oversight to the technical staff supporting the Subtasks. Ms. Clark holds a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from the University of Dayton with a minor in Environmental Engineering. Dr. Melissa Klingenberg is an Advisor Engineer at CTC in Johnstown, Pa. She provides overall support to the Environmental Technologies Discipline with particular emphasis in the laser decoating and inorganic finishing areas. Her primary inorganic finishing responsibilities lie in innovative coating and surface finishing processes, with her areas of expertise being advanced vacuum deposition/surface finishing technologies and plating processes. Dr. Klingenberg received a B.S. in Chemistry and engaged in post-baccalaureate studies in biology at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. She received an M.S. in Manufacturing Systems Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh and a Ph.D. in Materials Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Klingenberg has been an active member of NASF since 1994, and has presented and/or written numerous papers for NASF and AESF events and publications. Dr. Elizabeth Berman is a Senior Research Engineer in the Materials & Manufacturing Directorate of the AFRL at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. She has 17 years expe- rience with the Air Force, two years with the Navy, and 10 years in private industry. Dr. Berman currently is assigned to the Environment and Energy Quality Team. She is the AFRL lead and manager for programs to reduce cadmium and chromium in metal plat- ing operations. She is also the AFRL lead on aircraft and runway deicing technology programs, and the technical manager for both fluid and non-fluid methods to eliminate haz- ardous pollutants used in aircraft and runway deicing. Additionally, Dr. Berman is leading the Air Force effort on algae research to manage carbon dioxide sequestration con- cerns. Dr. Berman has two years experience at the Naval Aviation Depot in Alameda, Calif., managing aircraft painting systems and processes. She also worked for three years at the Air Force Center for Environmental Excellence where she represented the Air Force in technical negotiations with base, contractor, regulator, and community repre- sentatives on more than 25 Air Force installations. Dr. Natasha Voevodin is a Senior Research Engineer with the University of Dayton Research Institute, working for the Environmental and Energy Quality Team in the Materials & Manufacturing Directorate of the AFRL. She has more than 20 years experi- ence in materials research, specializing in coating formulation, corrosion science, chemical analyses, and spectroscopic techniques. She has a strong background in material science of organic, inorganic, and polymer coatings, application of analytical and spectroscopic tech- niques. Her most recent work includes: programs to reduce hazardous materials in metal plat- ing operations, the development of advanced inorganic finishing technologies; environ- mental and energy technology evaluations; and the evaluation of environmentally benign coating removal processes.
