      I don’t have any patents, which is a bit of a shame. I would love it if I did!

      I have built two testing systems. One tested how stable supersonic jet fuels were when exposed to heat. The other was a screening process to figure out if additives reduced diesel emissions. Sadly, neither of these will make me money.

      Unfortunately, I have not built any inventions. I have built things in the lab that I need for experiments!

      None! But our Research and Development department has many patents most of which I do not understand.

      In aerospace there are a lot of opportunity to earn patents to be an inventor with the financial backing from a corporation.

      None…..my role does not involve submitting inventions.
      I do however come up with inventive ways to solve daily problems. Different ways to think, thinking outside the box. An invention doesn’t have to be a physical object; it can be a new way of thinking or solving a problem. Dream big but think bigger!
