About

I am supporting the RF photonics program at the Air Force Research Lab. My current work focuses on the design, simulation, fabrication, and characterization of photonic devices for the advancement of analog RF photonic link technologies. My research experience includes a long history of semiconductor device design and fabrication, familiarity with software packages for device simulation, and proficiency in optical characterization.
