Chief Technology Officer

David Binger, PhD

David joined Forced Physics in 2013 and serves as the company's Chief Technology Officer. David and Scott Davis constructed and tested hundreds of prototype cooling devices with the goal of finding a scalable and manufacturable design that delivers outstanding heat transfer performance. In 2015, the team produced a laboratory-scale prototype that demonstrated high-density cooling.

Before joining Forced Physics, David worked for more than 10 years at the MEMS Exchange, a DARPA project hosted at the Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI) in Reston, Virginia. As a Senior Software Developer, he led a team of developers that created a custom ERP system to manage the unique and highly complex workflows of the world's first distributed MEMS fabrication network. The MEMS Exchange built MEMS prototypes for hundreds of customers — including Forced Physics. David's research, ranging from 19th century gas experiments to modern work on gas–surface interactions, gas kinetics, DSMC, and molecular dynamics simulations, contributed to the understanding of how Forced Physics technology fit into the broader science narrative.

Prior to CNRI, David was a computer science professor at Centre College. David was a summa cum laude math major at The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. He earned an M.S. in mathematics (applied) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and then realized that computer science was more fun. He thereafter earned a Ph.D. in computer science in the area of electronic design automation algorithms.
