Steve Hayden's Experience

This page is a listing of noteworthy projects and activities I have lead or been involved with during my long career. Please direct any questions to

Kathy, the following is my note to Joe Biden ( so please review that too. Let me know when you've done that so I can remove this section before "publishing" this page.


I am a seasoned technologist with diverse experience in various technologies as well have had the privilege of being an Academia-Industry liaison for several global companies throughout my career. I will include later in this correspondence links
to notable activities I have been involved with as well as 2 separate resumes, one describing the Academia-Industry liaison work as well as another that includes my work a more "conventional" technologist. I have been monitoring the various NIST/etc. website's career/position's postings but practically all require Phd's or other advanced degrees, however I possess an Associates Degree (1976) from a small community college in my hometown in southwest Virginia. My level of education has never been an impediment to my gaining and keeping employment working alongside every type of degree possessed by fellow employees or academic faculty/staff/students.

I am eager to be involved in the CHIPS effort, and am convinced my education and career provides me with "the right stuff"
to be a valuable contributor to the effort, and this correspondence is to request any assistance and guidance that might
be offered to continue with my passion being liaision between academia/industry and industry/industry (as well as government
and standards bodies).

I reside in the Research Triangle Park, NC area, within 30-40 minutes of several local universities and am in a prime
location to engage at those universities as well as others.
