Congratulations to Lewis Johnson, who defended his Ph.D. work “Multi-Scale Modeling of Organic Electro-Optic Materials” on April 5. Lewis was born and raised in Seattle, WA. He attended Pomona College in Claremont CA, where he received his B.A. in Chemistry in 2007. Lewis has been a student in Professor Bruce Robinson’s lab since 2008, where he has used a variety of modeling techniques to study soft-matter materials for electro-optic and biophotonic applications. Lewis also enjoys photography, writing, running, curling, and softball, among other interests. He is exploring a variety of options for post-doctoral research.
