Pawel graduated from Caltech in 2013, where he received his BS in physics with honors. While there, he worked in Axel Scherer's research group applying novel nanofabrication techniques to problems in device physics. Afterwards, he moved to Cambridge where he is currently a PhD student in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Harvard University. His research focus sits at the intersection of nanofabrication, nanophotonics, and nonlinear optics.
