JFOUND: McGuirk, Michael [MC1967] Physics Lecturer @ Norwich U



Physics Faculty and Staff
Michael McGuirk
Physics Lecturer
Norwich University

Michael McGuirk earned his B.S. in mathematics from Manhattan College and his M.S. and Ph.D. in physics from the University of Maine at Orono.

His research has included electromagnetic wave propagation and the interaction of light with matter. Dense wavelength division multiplexing, which is used to squeeze all those TV channels into one optical fiber, is one practical application of his work. He served as the systems architect for the Diffuse IR Background Experiment instrument on the Cosmic Background Explorer satellite. He managed the design and construction of an interferometer used for a classified project. That interferometer was later repurposed to control polishing of the Hubble Telescope secondary mirror, the one that was done correctly. He designed space flight instruments used to understand the chemistry of the ozone layer and to verify compliance with arms treaties. His research on high-energy-laser mirrors led to a 100-times increase in power-handling ability, and a successful SDI demonstration against a fixed target. He was the systems engineer for the high energy transmission grating instrument on Chandra, and liaison between NASA and the Dutch scientists building Chandra’s low-energy transmission grating instrument. Most recently, he supplied technical expertise to three space weather instruments: the solar proton spectrometer on DSCOVR, and the SUVI and EXIS instruments on the four GOES-R series satellites. At Norwich he teaches PS201 lectures and PS211 labs.

JFOUND: Kristov, Lorenzo [MC1967] Speaker, ESNA Conf



Lorenzo Kristov, PHD
Independent Consultant
Former Principal, Market Design, California ISO

Speaker, ESNA Conference and Exhibition | November 5-7, 2019 in San Diego, California

Lorenzo Kristov is an independent consultant focusing on power system evolution toward high levels of renewable generation and distribution-connected energy resources (DER), and a more decentralized structure. Areas of expertise include: wholesale market design; DER participation in wholesale markets; coordination of transmission-distribution operations, markets and planning; distribution system operator (DSO) platforms and distribution-level markets; microgrids and energy resilience strategies; whole-system grid architecture.

From 1999 to 2017 Lorenzo worked at California ISO as a principal in market design and infrastructure policy. In that position he was a lead designer of the locational marginal pricing (LMP) market system the ISO implemented in 2009. He later led initiatives to redesign the transmission planning and new generator interconnection processes to accommodate rapid growth of renewable energy projects triggered by California’s renewable portfolio standards. Over the past several years he worked on initiatives to integrate DERs into markets, operations and planning, to advance transmission-distribution coordination between the distribution utilities and the ISO, and has written papers and participated in national and international forums on power system evolution and architecture.
Prior to joining the California ISO Lorenzo was Energy Economist at the California Energy Commission (1995-9) and Fulbright Scholar in Indonesia (1993-4). He has a BS in mathematics from Manhattan College, MS in Statistics from North Carolina State University, and PhD in Economics from University of California Davis.

JNEWS: Fife, William “Bill” (MC1967) celebrated a 50th wedding anniversary



Long Island
Love Story: Romance brewed at Sunday tea dance at Manhattan College in 1964

  • Bill and Patricia Fife of Merrick celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in August 2018.

*** begin quote ***

Patricia Fife of Merrick recalls the day she met her husband, Bill.

We met at a Sunday tea dance at Manhattan College in November 1964. I was sitting with my friends when Bill Fife, a young man I hadn’t noticed before, came over and asked me to dance. It was the last dance of the afternoon.

He was a junior at Manhattan College studying engineering. I told him my name was Patti DeAngelis. I was a freshman at the College of New Rochelle studying nursing. I was 17. He was 20.

Bill and Patricia Fife of Merrick attend the Valentine’s Day Military Ball in 1970 at Brooks Air Force Base in San Antonio. The couple were married in August 1968 in Pelham Manor, in Westchester. Photo 

Bill was a cadet with the U.S. Air Force Reserve Officers’ Training Corps and asked if I’d like to go with him to an ROTC party the next Saturday. I said, “Yes.”

Since he didn’t have a car, he had to take a 90-minute ride on two different buses from his house in Yonkers to mine in Pelham Manor, in Westchester. We had a terrific time at the party. And, despite the bus commute, we continued dating. He was persistent.

We participated in many ROTC social events including the ROTC Military Ball at the Statler Hilton, now the Hotel Pennsylvania, and St. Patrick’s Day parades in Manhattan.

[JR: Bill was my bridge partner often down in the Ingineering Cafeteria.  Everyone humorously referred to them as “Fife and Wife” long before they were married.  They were inseparable.  There was no doubt of that.  So they were our “J-Rod” (Jennifer Lopez and A-Rod). Laugh!]

JFOUND: Kelly, Robert M. Jr. [MC1967] Senior Warden @ Christ Church Shrewsbury



Who is Bob Kelly?

Well, I am the incoming Senior Warden (duh!) but I want to tell you a little about myself.

I was born and reared in New Your City just after the end of WWII. My family and I lived in Washington Heights (way before Lin Manuel Miranda). My father was a longshoreman (though he looked like a banker) and my mother was a legal secretary (though she looked to me like a mom). I have a brother six years my junior who lives in Arizona (go figure). I attended Regis High School (Jesuit), Manhattan College (CBA brothers), and Stanford University (sui generis). I received Electrical Engineering degrees from the latter institutions. I joined Bell Laboratories and worked there and at the larger AT&T for 31 years be fore embarking on an encore career teaching and researching at Monmouth University and Stevens Institute of Technology.

As many of you know my beloved wife Annemarie passed away in August 2012. My daughter, Kristen, lives, along with her husband Scott (Kormann), with me (bittersweet). My Shrewsbury home now also has 5 bunnies and 1 cat.

As you can surmise, I was raised a Roman Catholic – altar boy (when you had to pay dues to be one!), etc., etc. After falling away from the RC church, I became an Episcopalian in the mid – 1970s partly to provide my daughter with religious education of a thoughtful, yet traditional, so that she could reject it later on (and read James Joyce and have a chance to understand it).

I joined Christ Church Shrewsbury in 1979 and have been a member since. I served in the choir for 35 years. I became more active in parish affairs beginning with the search committees to find our new, and current Rector. Subsequently, I chaired the committee that selected our new (and current) organist / choirmaster, was senior and junior warden, vestry member, parish historian, Graveyard Commission Chair, grant writer, and project manager of numerous grant projects.

I very much look forward to serving the parish for this term as senior warden and would like to hear from you about your view of the parish and what it does well and what it can improve upon. Please buttonhole me at coffee hour or give me a call or drop me an e – mail. (No texts!)

Robert M. Kelly, Jr.

P.S. The AMDG is a little research opportunity

JNEWS: Trigo, Robert J.[MC1967] Middletown Sports HoF



Middletown Sports Hall of Fame: Four teams, 11 individuals to be inducted
By Paul Augeri Published 7:25 pm EST, Tuesday, January 22, 2019

*** begin quote ***


Trigo was a standout hurdler at Cardinal Hayes (1958-62) in the Bronx. As a senior in ’62, he established a New York Catholic High School A.A. outdoor record in 1962 with a time of 19.2 seconds in the 180-yard low hurdles.

He earned an athletic scholarship to Manhattan College and won the 400-meter hurdles at Randall’s Island as a freshman. He was honored as Most Improved Athlete as a junior. In his senior season, when the Jaspers won the Metropolitan Championship, Trigo competed in the high and intermediate hurdles and the 200 meters, and was the lead off runner in the mile relay.

In 1989, Trigo re-entered the field of competition, running in meets along the East Coast on the U.S. Masters circuit. He won silver in the 400 hurdles at the national championship meet in San Diego, and two weeks later he took home bronze in the world championship meet in Eugene, Ore.

Trigo will join his daughter, Maureen, who was inducted in 2007 and again in 2017 as a member of Mercy’s 1994 championship softball team.
