Richard graduated Burlington high school in 2008 and began his work at the Photonics Center in the summer of 2008. He joined the undergraduate program in Mechanical Engineering the same fall.
His research interests at the Photonics Center is in the area of Hall effect measurements and the effect of doping levels in a semiconductor on these. Hall effect allows one to obtain carrier density and electron mobility inside a semiconductor.
Rich's interests outside of class and work are in music and automotives. He loves to compose music on his guitar, and work on his motorcycle and car.
