Engineers in the Spotlight

The second engineer in the spotlight for Engineers week is David Martinez-Morett. He works as a Research Engineer IV at the Emerson office in Boulder, Colorado. David has been with the company for 1 year and 6 months and holds a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and master’s degrees in both Chemical Engineering (Rowan University) and Mechanical Engineering (Colorado State).

We had a chance to ask David some questions.

Editor: Can you tell us a little more about what you do?
David: As a research engineer I support engineering projects that require investigation in advanced disciplines including fluid dynamics, process modeling, data analysis, proof of concept validation, manufacturing techniques, and algorithm development among others. I help generate new ideas for product design or industrial applications to ensure total customer satisfaction while ensuring Micro Motion’s Coriolis meters advantage over the competition.

Editor: What made you choose to go into engineering?
David: As a young kid I was fascinated by the natural sciences and technology. I enjoyed watching programs on space exploration or how scientists at various points in history had been able to achieve breakthroughs that changed the way we live. I wanted to be a part of that, to understand how things work and how to take an idea and use knowledge and tools to build new technologies.

Editor: What, to you, is the best thing about being an engineer?
David: Engineering allows you to take your life and career to virtually anywhere you want. It’s not only a great career choice, but it’s also fun. Yes, it can be difficult at times but at the end of the day it provides great satisfaction when you can solve a problem.

Editor: What would you say inspires you every day?
David: I think it’s memories of my father from when I was a child. Growing up, my father had an amazing memory for dates and an ability to do math operations in his head. He was always showing me how to fix things around the house and how to be patient when I couldn’t loosen a bolt or screw. “Don’t let that piece of metal beat you,” he used to say, or “if you can’t loosen it, then try tightening it and that might help release it.”
