Michael Hochberg

Director, Institute for Photonic Integration, University of Washington

Michael Hochberg received his BS in Physics (2002), his MS in Applied Physics (2005), and his Ph.D. in Applied Physics (2006) from Caltech. His thesis was awarded the Demetriades-Tsafka Prize in Nanotechnology for the best thesis by a graduating Ph.D. student in the field of Nanotechnology.

As an undergraduate, Michael co-founded two companies: Simulant, which sold the first commercial distributed FDTD code; and Luxtera, a venture-funded company working to commercialize silicon photonics. As a graduate student, he worked on developing integrated nonlinear optical devices using silicon photonics. He was the recipient of an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and, as an undergraduate, of a merit-based fellowship from Caltech.

Michael recently joined the faculty at the University of Washington in Electrical Engineering, where he was the recipient of an Air Force Office of Sponsored Research Young Investigators Program award in 2007.
