Sean is a professor of Physics at Yale and has been a member of the faculty since 1994. He earned his Ph.D. in Physics from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1992 as a student of Charles (Charlie) Slichter. Before joining Yale, Sean was postdoctoral fellow at at AT&T Bell Labs. He is currently the Dean of Graduate Studies in Physics and has previously served as the Dean of Undergraduate studies.
Current Graduate Students
Robby is fourth year Ph.D student in Physics at Yale. He is also the recipient of a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and earned his B.S. in Physics from University of Maryland College Park in 2012. Currently, Robby’s research projects include using the quadratic echo line-narrowing sequence to investigate C-13 and Si-29 in shale and limestone as well as developing sparse sampling techniques and the reconstruction methods thereof.
Stefan, a fifth year Ph.D. student in Physics at Yale, earned his B.A. in Physics from Williams College in 2009. His research projects include using multinuclear techniques to enhance P-31 quadratic echo line-narrowing and imaging in solids, application of the quadratic echo to spin>1/2 nuclei as well as MR imaging of granular materials. As a student of Yale's Integrated Graduate Program in Physics and Engineering Biology (IGPPEB), Stefan’s outreach includes co-organizing the monthly Sackler Discussion Group.
Jared, a fourth year Ph.D. student in Physics at Yale, earned his B.S. in Physics from the University of Dallas in 2012. His research projects include reconstruction algorithms for sparsely sampled data as well as using multinuclear techniques to expand the scope of quadratic echo line-narrowing in strongly coupled heteronuclear systems of H-1 and P-31 . At Yale, Jared was awarded the Yale Prize Teaching Fellowship and is an active volunteer in outreach such as the Yale Physics Olympics and high school bridge programs.
