Profile Summary

I have 15 years of experience in basic research, development, and engineering of state-of-the-art electro-optical and cryogenic systems for astrophysical telescopes and remote sensing instruments (from the far-Infrared/submillimeter to X-ray and gamma-ray wavelengths). My work involves managing high-risk high-potential technology research projects, technical leadership, budget definition and cost planning, strategic planning, initiating, leveraging, and maintaining working collaborations, and team coordination. I define and lead multidisciplinary and collaborative projects for NASA, NRAO, NSF, and others in the following areas :

• Electronic and photonic instrumentation and engineering for space- and ground-based astrophysics and remote sensing missions
• Cryogenic photon detectors, focal-plane arrays, and integrated spectrometers for mm/submm, far/mid-IR, UV/Optical/IR, X-ray/gamma-ray telescopes
• Basic and applied research on detectors including Kinetic Inductance Detectors (KID), Transition-Edge Sensors (TES), and novel bolometers
• Electronic readout and multiplexing circuits (analog and digital) for large-format cryogenic sensor arrays
• Quantum-noise-limited parametric amplifiers (RF/microwave/millimeter-wave) and their applications
• Submillimeter/THz heterodyne SIS receiver systems for very high-resolution spectroscopy
• Superconducting circuits and technology for synergistic applications in quantum computing, remote sensing, precision measurement, and astrophysical instruments
• Experimental superconductivity and novel materials fabrication for photon detectors

I also spend a portion of time on science community services and committees in the US and abroad for planning for new instrument concepts for future telescopes, reviewing NASA and NSF proposals, and mentoring students and postdocs.
