Seth Hubbard received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan Ann Arbor in 2005 and is currently an Associate Professor of Physics and Microsystems Engineering at the Rochester Institute of Technology.  He also holds joint appointment at RIT as graduate faculty in the Carlson Center of Imaging Science and the Golisano Institute for Sustainability.  His doctoral research consisted of studying the effects of materials properties and epitaxial device design on high power GaN heterojunction field effect transistors grown using vapor phase epitaxy.  Dr. Hubbard currently leads a team of graduate students and research staff working on the epitaxial growth, fabrication and characterization of III-V photovoltaic and electronic devices, with an emphasis on novel materials and nanostructures such as quantum dots. He has authored or co-authored over 70 journal and conference publications on III-V electronic and photovoltaic devices. Prior to RIT, Dr. Hubbard was a National Research Council (NRC) Postdoctoral Research Associate at NASA Glenn Research Center.  Dr. Hubbard has also served as Publications Chair for the IEEE Photovoltaics Specialist Conference.
