Senior Technical Advisor, Manufacturing Extension Partnership

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

Clara Asmail joined the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as Senior Technical Advisor in July 2010 where she is responsible for developing approaches to provide small R&D and manufacturing businesses with the services and access to resources that can help them grow and improve their productivity. She works closely with federal SBIR programs and their awardees to cultivate partnerships with the MEP network in order to enhance the commercialization of SBIR research results. Prior to this, Clara managed the NIST SBIR Program since 2001. She was also responsible for marketing NIST technologies. In those roles she proposed, designed and implemented an innovative NIST-wide Technology Transfer program facilitating the transfer of federal technology to industry by leveraging the SBIR Program for seed funding along with access to federal research assets. This SBIR TT approach is currently being implemented and/or considered by several other agencies. As a CRADA and Licensing Officer at NIST from 1998 to 2002, Clara executed a dozen licenses, more than 50 CRADAs and conducted more than 30 commercialization assessments on inventions disclosed from the NIST Labs. Previously, Clara was Project Leader for Optical Scatterometry research in the Physics Laboratory in NIST. She published 19 peer reviewed articles and established BRDF metrology competency at NIST. She was actively involved in standards committees work in her area of research, cooperating with Sematech, ASTM, ISO and other federal agencies. Clara patented a measurement methodology which was licensed by NIST to a small company that was later bought by a large corporation – that license holds the record for longevity and royalty revenue at NIST. Clara holds two M.S. degrees, one in Optical Sciences from the University of Arizona and the other in Physics from Tulane University, and a B.S. in Physics from Fordham University.
