GitHub - submodo81/rsm_analysis: This is a Python script to automate processing of reciprocal space map files. The parsing that is performed in this file was specifically developed for .csv files generated from Panalytical x-ray diffraction tools.


GitHub - submodo81/wow_analysis: My analysis of WoW Battlegrounds DataWor


GitHub - submodo81/xrc_analysis: This is a Python script to automate processing of x-ray rocking curve files. The parsing that is performed in this file was specifically developed for .csv files generated from Panalytical x-ray diffraction tools.

My Work Experience

Where I've interned and worked during my career.

U.S. Army DEVCOM Army Research Laboratory | Feb 2023 - Present

Research Physicist


General Technical Services, LLC | Feb 2022 - Mar 2023

Diamond Growth Scientist


Michigan State University | Aug 2017 - Feb 2022

Assistant Professor

As Assistant Professor and Research Manager, I coordinated the design of experiments (DOE) and guided students in the best practices of research execution. I managed student learning experiences, prepared course materials, and supervised student laboratory work. In addition, I authored technical reports and proposals to fund research and student salaries.

National Institute of Standards and Technology | Jun 2014 - Jul 2017

Research Physicist

I spearheaded efforts to develop synthesis and fabrication of electro- optical circuits. I worked independently and collaboratively on diverse projects in engineering and physics in a laboratory setting. I developed new multifunctional materials, coatings, and films and developed experiments to test the compatibility of various chemical compounds used in microfabrication processes with CVD synthesis processes.

University of Michigan-Flint | Jan 2014 - Jun 2014


I instructed undergraduate courses in classrooms with up to 35 students in the fundamentals of classical and quantum mechanics. I presented lectures and moderated student discussion of current developments in physics. I applied active learning pedagogy to develop curricula for undergraduate students in classical and quantum mechanics.

Sandia National Laboratories | Feb 2013 - Oct 2013

Postdoctoral Appointee

I investigated the fabrication of quantum bit (qubit) devices in silicon complementary metal-oxide-semiconductors (CMOS). I managed and met project milestones and timelines while adhering to semiconductor- specific safety procedures and protocols. I developed sound methodology for organizing tasks, setting priorities, and building a solid work plan.

Western Michigan University | Aug 2009 - Dec 2012

Research / Teaching Assistant

I researched process-structure relationships of nanodiamond thin film growth on metalized substrates. I taught courses in electricity, magnetism, mechanics, and astronomy. I modified an accelerator beam to add low energy ion implantation capabilities to the research facility.

Kyushu University | Jun 2012 - Aug 2012

EAPSI 2012 Fellow

NSF EAPSI 2023 Fellow at Kyushu University. I performed experiments at the SAGA Light Source in Kyushu, Japan under the guidance of Dr. Tsuyohi Yoshitake. Our experiments examined the crystal structure of ion implanted nano-diamond films.
