Assistant Professor of Physics

My career at Alma began in


My expertise:

Ph.D. in opto-electronics with postdoctoral training in optical imaging, optical sensing and wireless sensor networks. Over 5 years of experience in micro-optical design using ray-tracing software (OSLO, ZEMAX).  Lead several projects from problem identification with client to presentation of first prototype. Granted six US patents in optical design and optical communications.
