Drawing upon more than 40 years of practiced industry experience, Mr. Nakauchi most recently served as a senior technology specialist at Northrop Corporation from 1989 until his retirement from the industry in 2013. Since that time, he has been working as a consultant to several technology and engineering entities, including G&M Compliance, Northrop Grumman Space Technology, and Emulex Corporation. Commencing his career in 1969 as an engineer at Advanced Kinetics in Costa Mesa, CA, he has further served as a senior engineer, manager and director of EMC, EMI, and ESD throughout his fruitful career. In addition to his primary roles, he was an extension instructor at the University of California, Irvine, where he taught courses in electromagnetic interference, electromagnetic capability and PCB design control for electromagnet interference.

In an effort to remain abreast of developments in the industry, he served as chair of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and a member of the EOS/ESD Association.
Delving into his career due to his interest in disassembling and reassembling radios, Mr. Nakauchi’s progression toward becoming an electrical engineer was natural. He cites the highlight of his career to be when he served as head project manager for the company that designed the signal conditioner for the Space Shuttle. This project was the first one to be qualified to be used by the shuttle, which was a crowning achievement. In light of his professional accomplishments, he has received multiple Mentor Awards from the University of California, Irvine, as well as an Award for Technical Paper from the Instrument Society of America, and an Outstanding Service Award and Speaker and Committee Award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
