He has worked at NIST for the past 34 years in the areas of microwave network analysis and microwave power measurements. He is presently a Project Leader in the RF Electronics Group of NIST. Ron’s involvement includes the management of the microwave measurement services, fundamental research in the areas of power (higher frequencies, improved accuracy measurements) and scattering-parameters (uncertainties, nonlinear and THz network analysis ), and support for nanoscale device metrology, high speed electronics, , remote sensing for climate change monitoring, and electromagnetic properties of materials.
Ron has participated in many different organizations related to metrology including the Automatic Radio Frequency Techniques Group, NCSL International and the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society. In addition, he is Chair of the IEEE Standards Working Group on Coaxial Connectors and the Vice-Chair of the IEEE Standards Working Group on Rectangular Waveguides above 110 GHz
