Dr. Martin K. Anselm (Director of the Center for Electronics Manufacturing, RIT). Dr. Anselm holds an undergraduate degree in Physics, a Masters in Mechanical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Materials Science & Engineering. Dr. Anselm's Industrial experience includes twelve years of electronics failure analysis and root cause analysis. He also managed the Universal Instruments AREA Consortium which conducted research in assembly materials, process and reliability of electronic packaging. Dr. Anselm served on the Board of Directors for the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) from 2013-2019.
Dr. Anselm's Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Binghamton University dissertation was titled, "(Cu,Ni)6Sn5 Intermetallic Formation Kinetics on Electroless Nickel (Ni) When Varying Copper (Cu) Concentration and Reflow Process.” His current second level electronics packaging research foci include; 1. Advanced Manufacturing for electronic miniaturization, 2. Low Temperature lead-free solder alloy process optimization and reliability, 3. Solder joint microstructural evolution in thermomechanical fatigue. Dr. Anselm also supports Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) packaging and reliability studies funded through NYS and the DOD. Beyond this academic research, Dr. Anselm has also developed training courses for unemployed and under-employed veterans in the NYS Finger Lakes district. He has secured funding from New York’s Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) to provide veterans with training and certifications in electronics manufacturing. This work has resulted in gainful employment for many veterans in the local electronics manufacturing industry.
