Harold Garner

Harold Ray Garner ("Skip Garner") is a biophysicist with distinguished research careers both in plasma physics and in bioengineering. He received his BS in Nuclear Engineering (minor in computer science) at the University of Missouri, Rolla in 1976 and a Ph.D. in plasma/high temperature matter physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1982 [University of Wisconsin - Madison Libraries - MadCat Catalog [http://madcat.library.wisc.edu/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?Search_Arg=Low+frequency+turbulence%2C+particle+and+heat+transport+in+the+Wisconsin+Levitated+Octupole&SL=None&Search_Code=TALL&CNT=25&HIST=1] ] . He also holds an honorary professional engineering degree also from the University of Missouri, Rolla.

Before the academic segment of his career, he worked for 12 years at the major development laboratory General Atomics in La Jolla, California, where he conducted experimental and theoretical research for the Department of Energy at international fusion research facilities, principally in Japan (5 years) and the Soviet Union. In the last 6 years at General Atomics, he was a founding member of The Institute for Development and Application of Advanced Technologies, an internal think tank group, where he developed artificial intelligence/expert systems, new particle accelerators, high temperature superconductors, stealth technologies and biology software and instrumentation.

He currently holds the P. O’B.
