About the Author
My interest in energy and the environment sparked during my undergraduate career where I received double degrees in biology and chemistry with honors from St. Mary's College of Maryland. After teaching chemistry at the Kiski school in Pennsylvania and motivated to pursue solar research, I joined Frank Osterloh's photocatalyst group at the University of California, Davis. Supported by a NSF graduate research fellowship, I published and collaborated on several articles elucidating the photo-electrochemical properties of nanomaterials. Currently, I hold a post-doc at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, where I design and build spray-on photovoltaic devices for naval applications.
