Role in the KNI

My biggest role in the KNI teams is to provide help with new project installations as well as doing maintenance on equipment that is needed. On a daily basis I conduct walkthroughs of the labs, including the Keck lab that houses the TF-30.


I have been with KNI since Oct 2017, before that I spent form April 2011 to Oct 2017 being the Laboratory manager for Dr. Oskar Painter at California Institute of Technology. I was responsible for taking care of 3 optical labs and a cleanroom facility for his research group. IN his group I was the lead person for installations of many new pieces of equipment including 2 Dilution Refrigerators, an E-beam Evaporator and an Atomic layer deposition tool.
