Dr. Timothy Tresierras is a Senior Engineer, and his areas of expertise include mechanical engineering, electro-mechanical systems, materials science, vibrational and acoustic analysis (e.g., measuring noise as it relates to human hearing), prototype design, and maritime accident investigation (e.g. determining why vessels sink, cargo retention failures, container incidents, vessel mechanical/design failures, fraudulent claims involving vessels, etc.).
He is also experienced in investigating impacts, collisions, load and vibrational analysis on structures, the mechanical behavior of materials (e.g., stress analysis on parts, fatigue and wear), and the study of systems under the action of external forces (e.g., gear trains, appliances/machines, power transmissions).
Tim also has experience in electro-mechanical systems with practical skills in basic analog and digital circuit analysis and is certified as a SolidWorks associate in computer aided part design and rapid prototyping.
Tim’s previous experience includes teaching at both the University of California Berkeley and at the University of Miami. He has also worked with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan to solve complex multidisciplinary problems utilizing technologies in RF transmission, welding and fabrication, 3D printing, automated milling (CNC), computer networking, video/audio surveillance, programmable microcontrollers, batteries and basic circuitry.
