Profile Summary

Christopher C. Wilcox, PhD is an Electrical Engineer at the US Air Force Research Laboratory working in Aero-Optical Effects and Beam Control. Prior to this, Dr. Wilcox worked in the field of Adaptive Optics, Optical Interferometry, and Wavefront Sensing & Control at the US Naval Research Laboratory for 15 years. His research areas include optics, adaptive optics, mathematics, and hardware interfacing. He has earned a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology and has his Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of New Mexico. He earned his PhD in Engineering at the University of New Mexico in 2009 in which his dissertation topic was a model for atmospheric turbulence and holds several government patents. He has also had many years of experience in the development of mobile applications for smartphones including Android and iOS as well as web development. Previous work also includes working for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory at the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array outside of Socorro, New Mexico. Dr. Wilcox is a Research Fellow at the US Naval Postgraduate School at the Adaptive Optics Center of Excellence in National Security. He is a Senior Member of SPIE, as well as the chair of the SPIE Information Technologies Committee and member of the SPIE Publications and Strategic Planning Committees.

In addition, Dr. Wilcox was the lead developer and designer of the SPIE Field Guide and Conferences app for the Android platform. See spie.org/mobile for more details on SPIE's apps for mobile devices.
