For part of that time, Ms. Schultz was a lead research engineer at Armstrong Laboratory, where she directed research programs on biodynamic response, physiological response, vulnerability, and survivability related to aircraft crew exposure to mechanical forces and hazards. Ms. Schultz also developed measurement methodologies for research efforts ranging from glass fragmentation of aircraft canopies due to bird strike to EMI (electromagnetic interference) and physical testing of medical equipment. More recently Ms. Schultz has developed and maintained technical databases for Genzyme, a biomedical research company and has developed and taught curriculums to science students.
