Staff Spotlight: Jonathan Kelly

Jonathan KellyJonathan Kelly is a YSU STEM alumnus with a bachelor’s degree in industrial and systems engineering. As of November 2016, he’s back at YSU working with Drs. Brett Conner and Hazel Marie.

Earlier in 2016, it was announced that YSU would be partnering with the Air Force and other research centers to work on a grant-funded project involving additive manufacturing. With this new project came the need for additional personnel.

Jonathan is a project leader, meaning he works more behind-the-scenes than hands-on. With research and paperwork making its way back and forth between organizations and facilities, someone needs to be there to organize everything and help coordinate so that the project runs smoothly. He is here to assist Dr. Conner from an administrative view on this project.

Since earning his degree, Jonathan has worked as a quality engineer and as a quality and safety manager. This project will give him the opportunity to gain more experience while working on earning his MBA. He also works as a real estate agent on the side.

Jonathan Kelly is here for the duration of the project, ending in March 2019. For more information on the grant-funded project, read these resources from The Business Journal, WKBN, and the Tribune Chronicle.
