I received my B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2009. During my time there I completed a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at Cornell University along with multiple semesters of research with the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). I began graduate work at Virginia Tech, and in 2014 I defended my thesis entitled “Electrical Characterization of Ruthenium Dioxide Schottky Contacts on GaN” and successfully obtained my M.S. in Electrical Engineering. Upon completion, I was awarded the Bradley Research Fellowship and continued my work in pursuit of a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Virginia Tech. I am currently exploring the effect that material growth parameters have on fabricated high power Gallium-Nitride devices including Schottky diodes, PN Diodes, and HFETs.
