Summary

I am a college graduate of UC Davis with a Bachelors in Optical Engineering. Currently I am doing research with Professor Brian Kolner in his Laser and Electro-Optics Research Group. I am getting hands on experience working with a Ti:Sapphire laser and other optical equipment. We are doing research in phase noise analysis and timing jitter of the laser. My goal is to work for a company either in research and development or in fabrication and design of optical equipment. in either case I would like to pursue a job that is both challenging with rewarding accomplishments.
