I am a German-American Physics graduate student here at RPI. Born in Germany but completed high school as well as my bachelors in the US, which included a year studying in Japan. My research interests are in the domain of optics, more specifically nonlinear and quantum optics. Outside of the lab, I enjoy running, hiking, and rock climbing.
Saad Bin Ali Reza
I am a graduate student at the department of Electrical, Computer and Systems Engineering here at RPI. Born and raised in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I have completed my undergraduate degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. I am interested in researching in the fields of Optics and Photonics. Besides my academic interests, I also love music and astronomy.
I grew up in Bangladesh and came to the US after completing my undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering. Before joining RPI as a PhD student, I got my Master’s degree in ECE from Baylor University, Texas. My research interests are primarily in the area of optoelectronics, light-matter interaction and their biomedical applications. Besides school, study, and research I like learning about different culture and language. I also love food and like to try new recipes which at times makes me loose hope for my inner chef.
I am an international student from China. I speak Chinese and a little bit Japanese besides English. I enjoy watching anime and reading light novels in my leisure time
I am a graduate student studying physics at RPI. I was born and raised in Accra, Ghana. I completed my undergraduate degree in Materials Science and Engineering. My research interest lies in the field of optics, more specifically light-matter interactions. I love music (playing the piano) and also soccer.
I am a graduate student in the Physics Department from Hanoi, Vietnam. I first came to the United States as an undergraduate of Howard University. I am interested in optics, especially computational optics. As for hobbies, I like history and mythology. I also currently have more points than chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen in Fantasy Premier League.
I am an undergraduate student at RPI studying Physics and Mathematics. I am from upstate New York, and I have lived in a few parts of the state. My research interests include optics, particularly light-matter interactions, and hopefully using physics to help people. Outside of the lab I enjoy playing tennis, reading, and painting.
