Prior to this, he was a Senior Research Associate at NASA for 15 years. His primary area of expertise is the application of advanced methods of mathematical, numerical, computational, and probabilistic analysis to solve complex, nonlinear engineering problems, accounting for uncertainty quantification.Dr. Panzarella founded, and is currently leading, the rapidly growing Technology Development Business Unit at E2G, which focuses on investigating, integrating, and developing emerging technologies, ultimately leading to new software products, improved consulting services, and revised industry codes and standards.Other accomplishments include developing and maintaining a number of engineering analysis modules for our commercial software products, serving as the principal developer of the SagePlus™ software product for a number of years, and helping to architect our next-generation platform of commercial software deployment, PlantManager™. He is also responsible for initiating the Agile software development procedures that are currently in use by the software group.Dr. Panzarella contributed to the development and continued improvement of a number of industry standard documents such as the methodology behind the thinning damage factor calculation in API RP 581, 3rd Edition, a new solution methodology for evaluating material strength data in API 530, and the development of a new Part 15 for assessing High Temperature Hydrogen Attack (HTHA) that will be included in future editions of API 579-1/ASME FFS-1.
