  • Biography

    I got my bachelors with a major in physics and minor in economics from the University of Southern California. I then went to UC Santa Barbara for my PhD, where I did a combination of experimental and theoretical work on light scattering in colloidal crystals, disordered systems, and plastic composites (the last project being an industrial collaboration). For my postdoctoral work I went to the National Institutes of Health where I worked on projects in optics beyond the diffraction limit and theoretical models of growth factor transport in tumor angiogenesis. Currently I am an assistant professor of physics at California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, where my main research efforts involve theoretical and computational work on superresolution microscopy. I have also taught at the Brooks Institute of Photography (2004-2005) and Georgetown University (Fall 2006).
