Meet the Team

The OPIM Innovate initiative is led by Instructor In-Residence Jonathan Moore, with a staff of four student Lab Specialists. The Lab Specialists each have a technology focus area, but are cross trained in technologies across all five areas of 3D Printers, Microcontrollers, Data Analytics, Virtual Reality, and Internet of Things devices. They are available to walk you through the process of design thinking and provide all of the resources in our Innovation Space and Research Lab. All guests must sign in and out of the spaces and also reserve equipment if it is going to be used for an extended period of time.
