Dr. Sterling J. Backus

Honoring Michal Lipson, Columbia University

Submitted by Dr. Sterling J. Backus, KMLabs Inc.

I have only worked with Michal briefly on the CLEO 2017 committee. In that time she has gained my respect and admiration as a scientist, and someone who is truly interested in our photonics community. She is on the list of inspiring female scientists that I show to my 3rd grade "light and lasers" class. I always will look forward to working with her.
