Profile Summary

 As a scientist and engineer with over 10 years research and teaching experience, I am dedicated to educating the next generation of scientists and engineers. Some of my recent research has focused on bismuth doped glasses, in which I have made several important discoveries, including the broadest ever reported emission and the first carrier type reversal by implantation. I was also one of the first researchers to report femtosecond laser written waveguides in a chalcogenide glass. My main practical abilities lie in my optical measurement techniques, which I have honed into a repertoire of skills that make me confident in tackling the most difficult optical measurements. I have also developed new fabrication processes for optical devices based on carbon nanotube field effect transistors and reported electroluminescence from them. I worked in Japan from Jul 2007 to Nov 2011 and I have intermediate Japanese language ability.
