Dr. Everett is an Adjunct Professor in the UMBC Department of Mechanical Engineering and is a Voluntary Emeritus of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL). Formerly, he had been the Associate Superintendent of the Materials Science & Technology Division at NRL. Prior to that, he was the Associate Director for Materials Science at the Office of Naval Research Global in London, UK. He received his BS in Materials Science from Cornell University in 1979 and a Ph. D. in Engineering Materials from the University of Maryland in 1996. He has extensive experience in the areas of damage accumulation in Naval steels, synthesis and processing of advanced materials, armor materials, metal matrix composites, image analysis, micromechanics in multi-phase materials, and x-ray tomography.   He has over 100 publications and 7 patents.
Recently, I have been lucky enough to collaborate with some truly inspiring scientists on barnacle adhesion and mechanics; namely Kathy Wahl at NRL, and Dan Rittschof and Bea Orihuela at the Duke University Marine Laboratory.  Below are some journal covers resulting from these collaborations featuring my tomography work.
