Bio

Sean earned his B.S. in Physics and Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse, where he investigated a quantum dot based number resolving single-photon detector. Post-graduation, he worked at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Boulder, CO studying and characterizing superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors. Sean is an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship recipient. He joined the group in 2012 when he began pursuing his PhD in Materials at UCSB.

Research

Sean's research interests include the molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) growth and electronic characterization of novel materials including Heusler compounds and III-V heterostructures with potential applications in spintronics and semiconductor physics.
