I am particularly knowledgeable in structural design of lightweight components for the transportation industry. I excel at optimizing the strength to weight ratio of mechanical parts. I am also knowledgeable in design of human interfaces. I enjoy designing things that are inherently intuitive to use.
Techniques Anthony Kelbert Uses:
I enjoy solving problems wholistically. I divide my time equally between researching the background of a problem, developing potential solutions, and testing solutions that are most promising. I enjoy creating requirements matrices and then generating concepts where no solution is too absurd. Then I screen the concepts generated against the requirements to select the most feasible options.

Anthony Kelbert's Problem Solving Experience:
- I have independently developed a medical waste incinerator for use in humanitarian emergencies.
- I have developed programs in Microsoft Visual Basic to automate routine tasks and improve efficiency
- I have designed a medical oxygen system to be used in medevac aircraft
- I facilitate collaboration between engineers, technicians, and suppliers
- I operated my own construction and car repair business
- I designed a cargo deck for a military transport vehicle that was 50% lighter than its predecessor and maintained the same load capacity
- I have used computational fluid dynamics software to optimize flame propagation and extend exhaust gas retention time in an incinerator
