Matthew Davis is a CNST/SU Graduate Student Researcher in the Nanoscale Imaging and Spectroscopy Group. He received a B.S. in Physics from Illinois State University and is a doctoral candidate in Electrical Engineering at Syracuse University. His doctoral research, in collaboration with the CNST, focuses on designing and building nanophotonic devices based on surface plasmon polaritons. Matthew is working with Amit Agrawal on developing aperiodic nanoplasmonic devices for applications at optical frequencies for color filtering, switching, and sensing.
