Profile Summary

Tom received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Northwestern University in 2005, and received a M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2007 and 2010, respectively. From 2010-2012 Tom trained at UC Irvine in the NIH T32 Training Program in cancer biology, and he is now a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Defense Breast Cancer Research Program. He possesses a strong background in optical devices (lasers, photodetectors, and optics) and semiconductor physics, with specific applications in biomedical optical sensing and imaging. Tom is currently applying his unique background in engineering combined with training in cancer biology to engineer quantitative approaches that improve and advance the basic scientific and clinical research in breast cancer. He has received several awards and grants, actively publishes his work in leading biomedical optics and engineering journals, and frequently presents his research at optics conferences.
