Baylor Discusses her Journey to a Career in Applied Physics

Martha-Elizabeth Baylor, assistant professor of physics, gave an invited talk entitled "A Random Walk into Optical Signal Processing and Integrated Optofluidics" on April 14 as part of the American Physical Society April Meeting session on "Doing Science, Improving Diversity: Strategies for Minority Physicists." Her discussion traced her career path from her dreams of being a paleontologist and to the pursuit of a career in applied physics. Baylor also discussed her research in the areas of opto-electronic blind source separation and holographic photopolymers, as well as the non-linear path that has gotten her to this point.
