Electrical and Computer Engineering PhD, 2010
I am a PhD Candidate at Drexel University developing a real-time adaptable photomask for contact photolithography fabricated from holographically formed polymer dispersed liquid crystal thin films. Currently I research in holography technology and teach several undergraduate courses for the Electrical Engineering department at Drexel University. Research interests for the future include patterned materials, nanotechnology, and renewable energy solutions.
Earning a nationally competitive fellowship has enabled me to pursue more of my own research interests than what might have been possible otherwise. It has also allowed me to assume the role of course instructor for multiple undergraduate courses. I feel that having my research proposal be nationally recognized has prepared me to be competitive when I start to look for faculty jobs.
