Paul Way (M.S. Physics, Advisor: J. Wygant)


After receiving my M.S., I worked for the Environmental Protection Agency as a Physicist in the National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ann Arbor, MI.

I then returned to MN, and have worked in product development and R & D for Donaldson Company, a global manufacturer of filtration products. I remember: cookies on Wednesdays at symposium’s, Bayman's bus stop problems from classical mechanics, working on observational data/physics on the 4th floor. I married to Sarah Way (Alfano, M.S. Physics 2002), with two Children, Evan age 8 and Cathryn age 5. Ben Bayman's classical mechanics course and his teaching style were fantastic. I also enjoyed working with John Wygant and his team of students at the time. Currently Director, Global Computational and Test Systems. M.S. advisor Wygant. After graduation: Donaldson Company.
