Nathaniel Kinsey received his bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Missouri – Columbia in 2011, graduating Magna Cum Laude. He followed with his Masters of Science from the University of Missouri in 2012 where he researched optically activated solid-state switches for high energy RF systems. Following, Nate moved to Purdue University to pursue his PhD where he has researched nonlinear optics, integrated nanophotonics, and plasmonics.
During his time at Purdue Nate has received several awards for his research contributions including the Meissner Fellowship, the Bilsland Dissertation Fellowship, and the College of Engineering Outstanding Graduate Research Award.
In the fall of 2016 Nate joined Virginia Commonwealth University as an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering where he has contined his studies of nanophotonics, nonlinear optics, and plasmonics while exploring their application and intersection with new areas of technology.
