Does Wavelength Affect the Transmission of Laser Radiation?

  •  Second Place Award – Physics
  • First Place – US Army Award
  • First Place – US Navy Award

Jun 2011-2012 -Current research project underway for future development

  •  Researched atmospheric lensing effects and collected data on the optical effects of inverse lensing, potentially capable of counteracting the atmospheric distortion in a laser beam’s path. The goal is to apply this inverse lensing value to a laser beam whereby the atmospheric lensing effect will then bring the laser back into near original focus at the target destination.
  •  Independently pursued research in optics and lasers. Experimented at the Wright Patterson Air Force base under the supervision of research engineer Wallace Rice and sensors lab engineering intern Michael Di Mascio.

Work Experience     

Computer Technician Assistant   2008

  •  Working with the Vartek Senior Network Engineer, assigned to help set up user accounts, drive space, and permissions for all students, grades 5-12, on the new servers at Deer Park City School District. This project included setting up drive letters in active directory and assisting in the preparation of 850+ computers in the school district to be re-imaged using Symantec Ghost.  Also assisted in connecting new PC systems to the updated ethernet network and performing initial functionality tests on all workstations.
