October 1995 PhD University of California Santa Barbara
December 1989 MS: Applied Physics: Columbia University New York, NY
May 1987 Bachelor of Arts: Double Major: Applied Math and Physics University of California Berkeley
I am a visiting researcher from Normal University in Beijing, China. I am studing the effect of ligand binding on the protein dynamical transition using THz TDS.
I am a final semester graduate student at the THz lab. My research areas include THz dielectric spectroscopy of biomolecules and optical characterization of materials. I am experianced in micro fabrication techniques with negative photoresists, designing and implementing optical experiments, designing and fabricating optical components etc.
I'm a final semester grad student working on a tunable THz detector based on a self-assembled plasmonic structure using GaAs 2DEG. My specialty is the Nanosphere Lithography which allows us to obtain a large area 2D plasmonic structure with submicron features. Now we then improve detector sensitivity, tunability and remove polarization dependence through it.!!!
I am a third year Physics PhD student studying protien correlated motions and how these vibrational modes change with binding and mutations. These measurements are performed using the THz microscope.
I'm a second year grad student working on photoactive proteins
I am a junior physics major currently working on Raman measurements of protein crystals.
I am a freshman physics major currently working on electrostatic alignment cells.
