Gary S. Selwyn received his B.S. degree in chemistry from New York University, Albany, in 1974, and his Ph.D. degree in chemical physics from University of California, Berkley, in 1979.  From 1979 to 1982, he did postdoctoral research at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand, and at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, DC.  From 1982 to 1994, he worked first as a Staff Scientist with IBM and then as a Research Manager at the IBM Watson Research Center.  He co-chaired a NATO Advanced Research Conference in 1993 and is the recipient of two R&D100 Awards.  He has been with the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Los Alamos, NM, since 1994, and studies the chemistry and physics of plasmas used in materials processing.  He is also the President and founder of APJeT, Inc., a spin-off from LANL that is commercializing a licensed atmospheric pressure plasma technology for material processing applications.  Gary has since retired and started his own company, Greenthemetek, treating fabrics and currently has a mask treatment to prevent COVID19 in the FDA approval process.
