Investigative Engineer

Research Areas:
Information Systems and Process Analytics


Larry D. Zuck in an investigative engineer working in various disciplines including: Research and Development, environmental, materials, and mechanical experience with a proven performance record. Vast experience working on focused research teams-leveraging collaboration, developing strategies, and providing technical support to produce successful outcomes.
Larry’s duties as the Principal Investigator as well as the Laboratory Space Coordinator include: the assurance that all qualifications and training requirements are up to date for lab personnel, ensure all laboratory documents including LI’s and Laboratory Notebooks are current, all lab personnel are following the laboratory documents required for that research in the lab as well as following procedures and PPE requirements within the laboratory, as well being aware of other experiments not related the their research.
Larry is currently working towards a M.S. in Materials Science from University of Idaho.  He holds a bachelor’s in environmental engineering from Montana College of Mineral Science and Technology. His awards include FLC Far West Region Outstanding Partnership with PPG Industries for “Hybrid Plasma reactor for Production of Nanoparticles.”
