Prior to Applied Materials, Mr. Barnhart was an engineering division officer in the U.S. Navy, where he ensured operational reactor regulatory compliance as a chemistry and radiological controls officer. He completed the U.S. Naval Nuclear Power postgraduate school with honors, earned accelerated promotion, and was evaluated in the top 1% of all Navy peers. Mr. Barnhart holds an MBA from the Walter A. Haas School of Business at the University of California at Berkeley, and a B.S. in electrical engineering from Washington State University’s College of Engineering in Pullman.
