Adjunct Associate Professor
Electrical and Computer Engineering
Jeremy Munday received his PhD in Physics from Harvard in 2008, his BS in Physics from Middle Tennessee State University in 2003, and was a postdoctoral scholar at Caltech until 2011 when he came to the University of Maryland. He is currently an adjunct Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research endeavors range from near field optics, photonics, and plasmonics for solar energy conversion to quantum electromechanical phenomena (such as the Casimir effect) for actuating micro- and nano-mechanical devices. He has received a number of recognitions, including the NASA Early Career Faculty Space Technology Research Award.
