For nearly a decade, I worked solely as an engineer. Through research positions at the University of Virginia’s Center for Applied Biomechanics and InfoSciTex at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, I published many peer-reviewed articles, technical reports, and conference abstracts. These academic publications – largely under my maiden name, “Frimenko” – are listed below.
