  • 2. SECTION I – EXPERTISE AND EDUCATIONEXPERTISE • Simultaneously managing several research projects as well as pursuing my own research interests, while stimulating colleagues to perform at their highest level and creativity. • Linear and nonlinear optical characterization from the ultraviolet to the mid-infrared spectral region using temporal regimes from femtosecond to nanosecond pulses widths. • Nonlinear optical characterization with and of femtosecond white light supercontinuum generation in condensed media and gasses. • Sample characterization specialties include pi-conjugated organic systems, as well as, non- conjugated small molecules, polymers, wide- and narrow-gap semiconductors including quantum dots, photochromics, organic and inorganic nanomaterials, polymeric-nanomaterial composites, photonic band gap materials and structures, rare-earth doped sol-gels, glasses, films, and fibers. • Optical and electro-optical characterization of organic small molecule and polymeric based devices such as organic light emitting diode (OLED) and organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices. • Experienced in the preparation of various nanomaterial containing composites and coatings and their destructive and non-destructive electrical, thermal and optical characterization. • Working knowledge of various electron imaging and scanning probe microscopies. For the last six years, I have successfully multitasked multiple programs and their respective managerial and scientific duties with the ability to pursue my own research interests in the linear and nonlinear optical characterization and modeling of various optical materials (π-conjugated and non-conjugated organics, wide/narrow gap semiconductors, glasses, plasmonic nanostructures, etc.) and the development and analysis of new experimental techniques (white light continuum generation for Z-scan and pump-probe and the double-pump probe technique for long-lived absorptions, etc.). These responsibilities include: (1) running the daily operations of a large research team of graduate students, post-doctoral and visiting scientists; (2) training of graduate and the occasional undergraduate and high school students, in theory and laboratory practice which involved a multi-disciplined knowledge of physics, optics, material science and chemistry to become independent researchers and to build their knowledge and skill-set, as well, as expanding my own; (3) maintaining multiple laser systems and laboratory operations, while guiding experimental design, setup and acquisition; (4) numerical modeling and simulation of linear and nonlinear light-matter interactions; (5) writing manuscripts and presentations for journals, conferences, proposals and program reviews, with the ability to tailor each for the intended audience with the additional ability to effectively communicate complex concepts and ideas at various levels to the intended audiences level of understanding; (6) the ability to motivate, work with, and manage a diverse group of researchers to meet planned and unplanned deadlines; and (7) successfully work with and help organize multiple collaborations, both nationally and internationally, specializing in research fields such as nonlinear optics (NLO), chemistry, materials science, physics, organic and inorganic device fabrication and both modeling and simulations of light- matter interactions. In summary, my strength have permitted me to simultaneously manage multiple research projects while both pursuing personal research objectives while challenging colleagues to perform at their highest level of creativity.EDUCATION Post-Doctoral University of Central Florida, 2004-2006 CREOL: College of Optics and Photonics Topics: Nonlinear Spectroscopy and Research Management Advisors: Drs.

  • 4. MENTORSHIPMentoring is an ideal practice to help others and to broaden your own understanding of the difficulties and decisions that are faced while allowing for your own empathic learning and development. I have had the privilege of working with students and colleagues at various stages in their career during difficult times when their future direction was unclear or not what they had envisioned. By providing a comfortable atmosphere of trust and understanding, I endeavor to offer support by listening, providing a “sounding board” and offering my opinion and experiences when appropriate, sometimes limited in particular cases, to help the individual come to their own realization of their current situation and options. Throughout my higher education I have had mentors, although I didn’t realize it at the time, that guided me through my own difficult times, and I only hope that I might have the insight and patience to help others as well.Undergraduate Students: Xavier Pedron (2003), Trenton Ensley (2006), Eva Mehner (2007), Lauren Rich (2007), Betsy Anne Hall (2007), Amy Hand (2009), Izabella Lipnharski (2010), Fez Shah (2011)Graduate Students: William Shensky III (2004-2005), Tarik McMillin (2004-2005), Jie Fu (Ph.D. 2006), Mihaela Balu (Ph.D. 2006), Frank McDonald (2005- 2007), Yu-Hsiang (2005-2006), Johnathan Rosch (2006-2008), Alessandro Salandrino (2006-2008) Shima Fardad (2007-2010), Claudiu Cirloganu (Ph.D. 2010), Gero Nootz (Ph.D. 2010), Peter Olszak (Ph.D. 2010), Morgan Monroe (2009-2011), Sihui He (2009-2011), Marcus Siedel (M.S. 2011), Davorin Pecelli (Ph.D. ~2011), Honghua Hu (Ph.D. ~2011), Trenton Ensley (Ph.D. ~2012), Himansu Pattanaik (Ph.D. TBD), Mathew Reichert (Ph.D. TBD), Oliver Kahl (Ph.D. TBD), Manuel Ferdinandus (Ph.D. TBD) Post-Doctoral Associates and Visiting Scientist: Dr. Raz Givishi (2004-2005), Dr. Asta Villanger, (2005-2006), Dr. Jisoo Whang (2005-2006), Dr. Lihua Ye (2008-2009), Dr. Lazaro Padilha (2006- 2010), Dr. Dmitry Fishman (2010-present)PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE CREOL: College of Optics and Photonics, University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL Senior Research Scientist/Group Manager, 2004 – Present • Prioritized the research group’s activities, including all aspects (experimentally-theoretically- programmatically) of funded programs running in parallel (as many as five), to satisfy funded program’s responsibilities and deliverables while planning for anticipated non-funded programs. • Conducts experimental and theoretical linear and nonlinear optical characterization of many classes of optical materials. • Responsible for writing manuscripts and presentations for journals, conferences, proposals, and program reviews, with the ability to tailor each for the intended audience.

Eric Van Stryland and David Hagan. From 2003 to 2004, managed and maintained the optics facility in the Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials at Wake Forest University under the direction of Dr. David L. Carroll. From September 2000 until 2003, responsible for managing and maintaining the optics division of the Center for Optical Materials Science and Engineering Technologies (COMSET) under the direction of Dr. John Ballato at Clemson University. These positions have afforded me the opportunity to conduct a diverse array of projects from conception through design, implementation and completion into a product or publishable output. My research focus has been on the linear and nonlinear optical characterization and modeling of various optical materials (π-conjugated and non-conjugated organics, wide/narrow gap semiconductors, glasses, plasmonic nanostructures, etc.) and the development and analysis of new experimental techniques (white light continuum generation for Z-scan and pump-probe and the double-pump probe technique for long-lived absorptions, etc.). My work within these research groups involved projects ranging from nanomaterials growth, scanning probe microscopy (AFM, SNOM, STM) and electron microscopy (SEM, TEM, EELS), to polymeric electro-optical device fabrication and testing (organic-LEDs (OLEDs) and organic-photovoltaics (OPVs)). This diverse variety of projects required frequent collaborations and provided a strong working knowledge of many experimental techniques and scientific disciplines.RESEARCH INTERESTS I am particularly interested in understanding how structural modifications affect the nonlinear optical properties of organic and nanostructured materials. Applications of these engineered organic systems with enhancement from nanomaterials will facilitate the next generation of passive nonlinear transmissive, reflective and absorptive devices. Noble metal nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes and other exotic nanomaterials, such as polymeric and boron nitride nanotubes, are of interest for 4
  • 6. engineered energy transfer and plasmon coupled systems. Other interests include photonic band gap structures for nonlinear optical applications and the development of negative index of refraction metamaterials from ordered (hard) to disordered (soft) nanostructure composites. My objective is to work with, and manage, a multidisciplinary team of scientists to solve challenging problems, create new technologies and to progress physical understanding for current and future applications and devices.EXPERIMENTALLY AND MANAGERIALLY CONTRIBUTED TO THEFOLLOWING FUNDED PROGRAMS1. “Center for Organic Materials for All Optical Switching” MURI-COMAS, Program sponsor: AFOSR contract FA9550-10-1-0558, Lead PI: Seth Marder (Georgia Institute of Technology), Program Manager, Dr. Charles Lee.2. “Engineered Multifunctional Nanophotonic Materials for Ultrafast Optical Switching” NLO MURI- 24, Program sponsor: ARO contract 50372-CH-MUR, Lead PI: Eric Van Stryland (University of Central Florida), Program manager: Dr. Doug Kiserow.3. “Self-Assembled Soft Optical Negative Index Materials” NIM MURI, Program sponsor: AFOSR contract: FA9550-06-1-0337, Lead PI: Peter Palffy-Muhoray (Kent State University), Program manager: Dr. Charles Lee.4. “Development of new materials for strong, broadband nonlinear transmission” Program sponsor: Israeli Ministry of Defense contract 993/54250-01, Lead PI: Raz Gvishi (Soreq NRC, Electro-optics Division, Israel), Program manager: Dr. Shlomo Vinner.5. “Materials and Devices for Zeno-based Opto-electronics: ZOE” Program sponsor: DARPA contract W31R4Q-09-1-0012, Lead PI: Joseph Perry (Georgia Institute of Technology), Program Manager: Dr. Matthew Goodman.6. “High Speed Materials for Optical Signal Processing” MORPH, Program sponsor: DARPA MTO contract N00014-06-1-0897, Lead PI: Joseph Perry (Georgia Institute of Technology), Program manager: Dr. Devanand K.
