I am helping to build a quantum computer!

I was a Sr Staff engineer working on near eye micro displays, one step towrds invisible computing. I am very proud of being a memebr of Mojo Vision family!

I did my postdoctoral research at the University of Pennsylvania. I designed a Process Design Kit (PDK) for mid IR wavelengths. I did two tape-out for IBM 7RF process and IME Photonics and fabricated my mid IR passive optical component library on SOI at Penn cleanroom facility.

I received my PhD at University of Southern California in 2015 as both a Viterbi Scholar and a Ming Hsieh Scholar. I worked at the Center for Energy Nanoscience (CEN) as a researcher focusing on the characterization of GaAs nanostructures (nanowires and nanosheets). Other research topics that I worked on during my PhD include, tuning the optical behavior of 2D materials, structural engineering of 2D materials for thermoelectric applications and the surface enhancement of III-V semiconductors for water splitting applications.

I received double MSs from University of California Riverside in Electrical Engineering (EE) and Materials Science and Engineering (MSE). My EE MS research was focused on leakage power optimization in CMOS logic circuits through threshold and supply voltage control. My MSE work was on the hybrid of density functional theory calculations and wet chemical synthesis of doped-TiO2 nanostructures.

I am additionally interested in the entrepreneurial body of Southern California. I received a graduate certificate in technology commercialization from Marshall School of business at USC and interned for Tech Coast Angels (TCA), both of which gave me a great opportunity to learn about the evolving startup ecosystem of the Silicon Beach.
