Hi, I'm David.
I make stuff.
I'm also a Ph.D. Candidate in Applied/Engineering Physics at Cornell University. My research involves optics, mechanics, and electronics at the nanoscale, but when I'm not doing that you can find me coding Android or HTML5 or building some crazy invention in the machine shop.
This page is under construction as of Nov 08, 2012.
I'm currently working at Intel as an intern and working on my Ph.D. thesis on the side. For my Ph.D. I am developing a novel optomechanical micro-scale accelerometer.Non-technical information
In my research I come across many interesting, beautiful, or quirky images. Here is a collection of some of the most interesting and artistic.Go »

Anything fun or interesting I do that is not related to my Ph.D. research goes here.
