Dr. Josh Conway joined DARPA in August 2012 as a program manager for the Microsystems Technology Office. His interests include linear and non-linear nano-photonics from UV to LWIR frequencies, active integrated photonic devices, RF photonics, advanced imaging systems and revolutionary space systems.
Dr. Conway came to DARPA from Kinsey Technical Services (KTSi) where he was senior principal engineer of special programs at the Los Angeles Air Force Base. Prior to joining KTSi, Dr. Conway joined the technical staff of The Aerospace Corporation in 2003. There he performed basic research on RF photonic systems and led research in electrically-driven, sub-wavelength light sources. Dr. Conway also worked as Boeing Satellite Systems starting in 2001 where he designed, built and tested fiber-optic subsystems for inter-satellite laser communication systems.
Dr. Conway has received numerous awards, has authored more than 30 technical papers and conference proceedings and holds nine patents.
Dr. Conway received a Bachelor of Science in Physics and Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from University of Illinois in Urbana, Illinois. He earned his Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering from University of California in Los Angeles for research in optical structures able to efficiently couple to deeply sub-wavelength dimensions.
