Before, I was the president of NeuroFieldz, a company offering high performance brain signal monitoring systems. We started with a nanophotonics project under DARPA at Northeastern University, aiming to build an all-dielectric sensor based on Lithium Niobate (LN). I fabricated photonic crystals, and created proton exchanged waveguides into LN. We received the NSF Innovation-Corps program, and I served as the Entrepreneurial Lead for my team. At Northwestern University I worked on a hair-cell flow sensor project in mechatronics, designing strain measurement setup for Boeing. I am currently an assistant professor of physics at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. My research interests include sensors and nanofabrication. Now, we are investigating the piezoelectric properties of LN as a strain gauge.
