Research Description: When I attended Duke (2007-2013), I studied time-delayed feedback in oscillators in order to realize inexpensive and robust sensor systems. One of my more interesting projects was to design an inexpensive radar source using principles of chaos. For my thesis project, I designed a new method for detecting the position of small objects (~ 2 cm) using large radio waves (~ 1 m), and in my final summer, I showed that the physics of this work could be transferred to lasers for detecting nanometer movements.
