DSCN1857 copyJeremy Munday received his PhD in Physics from Harvard in 2008 and was a postdoctoral scholar at Caltech before moving to the University of Maryland in 2011 as an Assistant Professor. He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award, ONR YIP Award, the OSA Adolph Lomb Medal, the IEEE Photonics Society Young Investigator Award, the SPIE Early Career Achievement Award, and the NASA Early Career Faculty Space Technology Research Award.

His lab’s current research endeavors range from photovoltaics, near field optics, photonics, and plasmonics for energy to nanoscale forces (e.g. the Casimir Force) for actuating micro- and nano-mechanical devices.

Prof. Munday is currently teaching courses on Solar Energy Conversion and on Electricity and Magnetism, and he looks forward to future courses on a variety of topics. He is also interested in music, and in his free time recently designed and built a hybrid electric resonator guitar.
