Jerry has spent over 30 years in gasification, starting in 1987 at Texaco’s Montebello, Calif. pilot plant. After eight years running a wide variety of commercial and experimental feedstocks through semiworks gasifiers, he moved into technical services and commercial plant operations roles. Jerry was plant engineer for Texaco’s first joint venture (JV) equity plant and later executive director of the JV, along with managing all of Texaco’s equity gasification activities. After Chevron acquired Texaco, he moved to process engineering management. Following GE’s acquisition of the technology, Jerry managed gasification R&D in addition to process engineering. He also led standard offerings development and air separation unit integration for IGCC. Jerry then became accountable for gasification equipment and services, with oversight in quality and operations management, and eventually oversaw licensing for all gasification activities outside China. He was responsible for overall gasification business operations when GE gasification was acquired by Air Products.   

Jerry received a B.S. degree in chemical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. He is the author of eight patents and numerous technical publications.
