August 2017: The group welcomes new postdoc Mike Lamont

Mike is the first postdoc to join our group. He received his B.Sc. from the University of British Columbia, his M.Sc. from Simon Fraser University, and his Ph.D. from the University of Sydney, all in physics with a strong optics focus. Mike won a Canadian NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship award, which he took to the Institute of Quantum Science and Technology at the University of Calgary, and a Kavli Institute at Cornell Postdoctoral Fellowship to work with Cornell’s AEP and ECE departments. His academic research spans a variety of optical phenomena including medical imaging, nonlinear photonics, and quantum entanglement. This research resulted in over 80 journal and conference publications, with 2800+ citations. He also brings with him years of experience in industry, working with companies in telecommunication optics, scientific instrumentation, and project management consultation and software.
