DIANE KEES – COO
Diane has been doing research in the area of ferrite devices in millimeter-wave applications since 2013. She received the MEng (EE) from the University of Virginia in 2014 with a focus of study in microwave engineering. In her last year of graduate study, she wrote two literature reviews titled “Faraday-Rotation Isolators in Microwave Circuits” and “Waveguide Y-Junction Ferrite Microwave Circulators”. Her final semester was spent working on the design of a W-band Faraday-rotation isolator.
Diane joined Micro Harmonics in 2015 and served as senior microwave engineer on a highly successful NASA SBIR developing high-frequency (50-325 GHz) ferrite components. She has been instrumental in helping Micro Harmonics take these products to the commercial market.
Diane also has industry experience in process automation, project engineering, and plant engineering at Borg Warner Chemicals in Morgantown, West Virginia, and Sumitomo Electric, fiber optic cable manufacturer in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. Prior to joining Micro Harmonics Corporation Diane was an instructor in the engineering transfer program at Virginia Western Community College. Her education includes:
- University of Virginia, 2014 – MEng. Electrical Engineering
- West Virginia University, 1982 – BS Electrical Engineering
- University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 1988 (18 hours towards MS, Mathematics)
