Jim Barshinger, Ph.D.
President & CTO
Dr. James N. Barshinger is the co-founder, President, and Chief Technology Officer of Sensor Networks, Inc. He is one half of the duo that founded this company and continues to make it succeed. Dr. Barshinger is based out of Sensor Network Inc.’s Engineering & Product Design HQ office in Boalsburg, PA. Dr. Barshinger, or Jim for short, is not new to the asset integrity, inspection, or testing field that SNI serves. Jim received his Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. from Pennsylvania State University School of Engineering Science & Mechanics. For Sensor Networks Inc., this would be the first connection to Penn State, which would eventually bloom into the robust relationship that exists now. His doctoral thesis was in Guided Wave Propagation, and he worked under Dr. Joseph Rose as his advisor. The experience he gained here was invaluable, and Jim continues to carry it with him.
Prior to founding SNI, Jim has been working in the NDT and Ultrasound industries with Krautkramer-Branson, AGFA NDT, GE’s Global Research Center and with GE Inspection Technologies for 15 years. He continues in his role as president and is involved in company decisions that will only continue to benefit the employees, customers, and the mission of SNI itself.
