Justin currently serves as an Assistant Research Scientist in the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics at the University of Maryland and in the Physical Measurement Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. His studies at NIST include physical mechanisms for thermal, ionic, and electronic transport in complex materials. Prior to this, Justin was a postdoc at The George Washington University, where his research spanned from quantum transport processes to vibrational energy transfer in molecular materials. Justin received his Ph.D. from Virginia Commonwealth University - studying protein dynamics alongside ab initio methods for computational enzymology - and his B.S. from The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
