Dr. Jay Prigmore received his bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Lamar University and his M.S. degree and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Arizona State University. His research for all three degrees was Power Engineering.

He is presently employed at Google Inc. as an Electrical Field Reliability Technical Program Manager. Prior to his employment at Google Inc., he was employed by Exponent Inc. and performed numerous failure analysis and root cause investigations. Upon graduation he was employed at G&W Electric Company where he was responsible for short-circuit protection devices, their manufacture and applications.

Dr. Prigmore developed a peer-reviewed arc flash mitigation device which won the "product of the year" in electrical safety. He is a founding member of NFPA 78 and 1078 which provide guidance on performing electrical inspections and the qualifications of electrical inspectors, respectively. Dr. Prigmore has published more than 20 peer-reviewed articles and has written two book chapters. He is actively involved in IEEE standards meetings, NFPA committees, and CIGRE workgroups.
