President/ Principal Engineer

In 2011, Tom founded Controlled Fluidics in response to industry demand for higher-quality, lower-cost manifolds. He brings a wealth of knowledge about the design and manufacture of fluidic and microfluidic bonded manifolds that provides the highest quality products to Controlled Fluidics’ customers. His experience helps create precision plastic components for devices that do everything from acting as a patient’s temporary heart/lung to facilitating microgravity experiments on the International Space Station.

Before Controlled Fluidics, Tom was principal engineer and owner of Connecticut Plastics, where he oversaw sales and process development, and had served as a design engineer for multiple companies. Tom earned his BS in physics from Providence College, his BS in mechanical engineering from Columbia University, and his MS in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan.
