Research Interests

For the past 15 years I have worked in support of the National Ignition Facility, first in development of rapid growth KDP and subsequent KDP processing, then management of LLNL optics processing. I am currently a process engineer working on the development of new coating technologies and improved AR coating performance. Prior to my assignment to NIF, I directed research in diverse areas primarily directed at detection of various trace organic species in aqueous and non-aqueous media.
