Aaron grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia—just a stone's throw from Gamry! He earned his B.S. and M.S. in Engineering Science at Pennsylvania State University. As a student of Dr. Barbara Shaw at Penn State, Aaron studied the corrosion of magnesium alloys in simulated body fluids. Since Dr. Shaw administers the Corrosion Short Course that is supported by Gamry, he also got his first exposure to Gamry instrumentation in her lab. Aaron worked under Dr. Jian Xu for his Masters Degree, studying optoelectronics and photonic materials. He studied the electron mobility in radiation damaged polymer solar cells which utilized nanostructured materials.
Since Aaron joined Gamry in 2010, he has learned a lot about potentiostats and electrochemistry. He’s an expert at computer hardware and software and is slowly bringing his knowledge of potentiostats up to that same level. We jump-started his electrochemistry career by sending him to the Case Western Reserve University Workshop on Electrochemical Measurements in 2010.
