Research Areas of Interest

My area of expertise is in semiconductor physics and fabrication. My current research interests lie in software-defined radio (SDR), printed semiconductor materials, and Very-Large-Scale Integrated (VLSI) circuit design. I am currently working with undergraduate and graduate students on projects in these areas, including developing Networking Protocol Discrimination Techniques in SDR for Antenna Characterization and 3D Printed Solar Cells. I have recently worked with a graduate student designing a VLSI chip for a communication system to transmit and receive data from sensors implanted in a human body.

My graduate research at the University of Utah was focused in the nanotechnology sector. I designed, developed, and fabricated silicon nanowires, nanoscale devices, and quantum electronics and have several patents from this work. I am excited about our new engineering building to be completed and the inclusion of a microscopy lab and a clean room. Having these capabilities at Weber State University will allow me, along with other faculty and students, to work in these exciting areas.
