Franklin Dollar is an assistant professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of California, Irvine. He is from California originally, and is a member of the Dry Creek Band of Pomo Indians. He has a B.S. in engineering physics from the University of California, Berkeley, then obtained an M.S.E. in Electrical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Applied Physics at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor before becoming a Senior Research Associate at JILA in the Kapteyn/Murnane group. His research expertise include experiments and numerical modeling of ultrafast laser plasma interactions in novel regimes; including light ion acceleration, electron acceleration, neutron generation, x-ray production, high-order harmonic generation, nanoplasmonics, shock physics, imaging, and high intensity absorption processes. He is involved with a variety of recruitment and retention efforts for underrepresented students in STEM fields, with a particular focus on American Indians.
