At the University of Houston, he held the position of Adjunct Professor, both in the Mechanical Engineering Department (ABS Adjunct Professor of Subsea Engineering Program) and the College of Technology (Mechanical Engineering Department). He teaches classes in thermo-fluid sciences, design of experiments, computational methods, and data science. Ed has taught at Clemson University and Texas A&M University, College Station.
Ed’s experiences/responsibilities involve the management of the Multi-Physics Simulations Group for GE Oil & Gas, FMC Technologies, and Landmark Graphics (Halliburton). In this capacity, Ed was responsible for leading several groups of engineering specialist responsible for performing thermal, mass diffusion, and multi-physics analyses on all major systems and sub-system components, development of thermal best practices for multi-physics analyses specific to each respective product. At Landmark, Ed was actively involved in Digital Twin development for upstream and production operations for Onshore & Offshore assets.
Ed holds the rank of ASME Fellow, AIAA Associate Fellow; is active in API and ASME technical committees (e.g., ASME Offshore Technology Conference OTC), served on several ASME committees (ASME South Texas Section and North-West Texas), and was an Associate-Editor for the ASME Journal on Transaction of Energy Resources Technology.
