Frank Johnson joined Niron Magnetics in March 2018.

Prior to Niron, he worked for 13 years at GE Global Research in Niskayuna, NY as a Materials Scientist in the Ceramics and Metallurgy Technologies organization. Dr. Johnson’s research has focused on magnetic materials used in power generation, distribution, and conversion technologies. This has included permanent magnets used in electrical motors and generators, amorphous and nanocrystalline soft magnetic materials used in electrical transformers and inductors, and magnetocaloric alloys used in magnetic refrigeration systems.Prior to joining GE, he had a joint D.C.I./N.S.F. post-doctoral fellowship in the Metallurgy Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, MD.

He earned a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and an M.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from M.I.T.
