Anthony Parker is pathologically curious.
Anthony has spent his life engaged in patient but intent observation of the world around him. From potent forces of nature with their perceived abundance and disruption to man-made machines and systems, which shape our reality for good or ill, Anthony has studied and reflected. He also revels in the findings of his predecessors, appreciating the genius of their observations and conclusions, while at the same time wanting to prove for himself that these findings are reproducible and that science is living. As an engineer, he takes the teachings of great professors and his own observations and experiences, and strives to apply them to challenges in elegant and appropriate ways.
After earning a B.S. in Physics from Appalachian State University and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Norwich University, Anthony worked on small wind energy systems as a Project Manager for the Western North Carolina Small Wind initiative before joining Cooper Perkins.
