We are pleased to share that CARD researcher and WPI student, Jacob Bouchard, successfully defended his PhD entitled, “MEASUREMENT AND MODELING OF WATER IN POROUS MEDIA USING MILLIMETER-WAVE AND TERAHERTZ SPECTROSCOPY” on December 4th, 2023. His work primarily dealt with the development of a novel non-contact moisture sensor for the Smart Dryer test bed.

His advisor was Dr. Doug Pekie.

Before graduation, Dr. Bouchard was awarded a National Research Council Research Associateship to work with the nanophotonics team at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC. In this position, Dr. Bouchard will work towards the development of a new solid-state optical retroreflector for communication applications.

Congratulations, Dr. Bouchard!
