Brief Biography: 

Josh received his Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Physics from Brown University in May 2008. Josh joined the lab during his junior year, and he was awarded an UTRA Fellowship to support his research during the summer of 2007. His research focused on optical characterization of electronic transitions in rare-earth ions. Specifically, Josh designed and fabricated an optical heterodyne interferometer to study fast population changes in Europium doped glasses and their potential applications for high speed all-optical switching.

After college, Josh worked as an optical engineer at the NASA/CalTech Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. Josh is now pursuing a Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University in the lab of Prof. Craig Arnold.
