He was a postdoctoral scholar at Caltech before moving to the University of Maryland In 2011 as an Assistant Professor. He received the NASA Early Career Faculty Award in 2012,  the 2014 SPIE Early Career Achievement Award, the 2014 IEEE Photonics Society Young Investigator Award, the 2015 Lomb Medal from OSA, the 2016 NSF CAREER Award, and the 2016 ONR YIP.

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.
