Ryan Gelotte

Applications Engineer , Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory

Over 20 years of experience in design, manufacturing, product development, tooling and digital engineering disciplines spanning multiple industries. This includes a strong background with advanced Computer Aided Technologies (CAx) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions. I have developed a deep understanding of many digital tools and processes. My passion is working with others to fundamentally change how products are realized by fully maximizing the value of these latest digital technologies. I wake up every day striving to leverage my past experiences to empower those in my sphere of influence to not only fully realize the value of the latest digital technologies but to also fundamentally change how people communicate product definition information. I believe changing the way we communicate is necessary to transform a company’s culture into one that embraces digital technology.
