Computer Engineering) at Seattle University in '06 and an M.S. in Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB '09). This was followed by an internship with Intel Labs working on the advancement of Si Photonics related to Light Peak.
In pursuit of a deeper understanding of photonics he is currently working towards a PhD at UCSB focusing on novel active-passive integrated devices enabled by bonding on low loss and ultra-low loss Si, SiO2 and SiN waveguide platforms. Jock is co-advised with Profs. Dan Blumenthal and John Bowers He is also an NSF GSR Fellow and continues to support Engineers Without Borders UCSB and Unite to Light working to provide sustainable lighting and development solutions to the 1.5 billion people who live without clean realiable electricity.
