  • Master of Science in Electromagnetics and Physical Electronics (UCONN)
  • Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (UCONN)
  • Associate Degree in Mechanical Engineering (TVSTC).

Seven years industrial experience in Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) technology. Microwave delay line design and processing using sapphire delay lines and ZnO transducers. Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) device fabrication on lithium niobate, lithium tantalate, GaAs and quartz substrates. High frequency digital/analog design, optical modulator(GaAs) fabrication. Optical lithography has produced linewidths of 0.5 microns. Thermal evaporation techniques have produced metal thicknesses(Au) of 20 microns for 20 micron diameter test patterns using lift-off techniques.
