Joseph M. Hobbs received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from The Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA in 2002. He studied thin-film polymer ceramic nanocomposite materials and their use as a dielectric to achieve embedded decoupling capacitance for the suppression of simultaneous switching noise. The large area test vehicle was fabricated using low-temperature processing techniques in a class 1000 cleanroom.   He was a recipient of the prestigious General Motors Fellowship in 1998 enabling him to pursue his Ph.D. He earned his MSE in Electrical Engineering from Youngstown State University in 1996 with a concentration in controls. He earned his BSEE from The Ohio State University in 1994 with a computer specialization. He has over 20 years of industry experience at Delphi, General Electric and Vitamix Corporation. While at GE he was certified as a DFSS and DMAIC black belt. During his career, he has served as a Project Engineer in Advanced Electronics, Program Manager, New Product Development Process Manager and Lean Manager for Engineering.
