Dr. Eric Zhang is a postdoctoral researcher in Silicon Integrated Nanophotonics at IBM Research. His current interests involve miniaturized chip-scale sensors for environmental monitoring.
Prior to joining IBM Research, Eric received his Ph.D. at Princeton University, where he specialized in optical spectroscopy for trace-gas detection, with particular emphasis on Faraday rotation spectroscopy for nitric oxide isotopic ratiometry. He received his B.A.Sc. in Engineering Physics from the University of Toronto, while working in the Micro/Nanophotonics Laboratory.
Eric is a recipient of the Walbridge Graduate Fund award from the Princeton Environmental Institute, and has received the Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship (NSERC) for his graduate studies at Princeton University. During his time in the University of Toronto, Eric also was a recipient of the Wallberg Fund and Queen Elizabeth II Aiming for the Top Scholarship, earning the Undergraduate Student Research Award (NSERC-USRA) for his work on passive photonic devices for optical sensing.
