An electrical engineer and an applied physicist, David Burghoff is an assistant professor in the electrical engineering department at the University of Notre Dame. Prior to this, he was a postdoc and research scientist at MIT. The overarching theme of his research is the development of new platforms that will allow long-wavelength light to be used in scalable sensors and systems. Broadly speaking, it focuses on devices and systems that blend nanoscale optoelectronics, ultrafast & nonlinear optoelectronics, and integrated long-wavelength photonics, with applications in healthcare, energy, sensing, security, and transportation. His broader ambition is to usher in an era of ubiquitous mid-infrared and terahertz photonics, and he is excited about the possibility of using these technologies to address some of our most pressing challenges.

His awards include the AFOSR Young Investigator award, MIT’s Best Electrical Engineering Ph.D. Thesis, and the Intelligence Community Postdoctoral Fellowship.
