I received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Central Florida UCF, Orlando, FL, in May 2020. During my Ph.D. studies at UCF, I was with the CREOL, the College of Optics and Photonics, as a graduate research assistant in Prof. Sasan Fathpour's IPES group, working on design, fabrication, and characterization of photonic integrated circuits focusing on thin-film lithium niobate devices such as electro-optic modulators, and second-order nonlinear optical frequency converters. From May to August 2019, I was with the imec USA, as a photonics research intern. In May 2020, I joined Prof. Ming Wu's IPL group, in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, as a postdoctoral scholar where I'm currently working on large-scale MEMS-based silicon photonic optical switches.
