Jason grew up in Beloit, Wisconsin just north of the Wisconsin-Illinois border. He received his B.A in physics and mathematics (as well as a computer science minor) from Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 2009. During his undergraduate career, Jason primarily studied oxide glasses. In the summer of 2011 he also worked to develop a fast, radiation-hard scintillator for the CMS detector at CERN, and in 2012 he interned at Corning, Inc. Jason is now a student at UW Madison under Dr. Paul Voyles. His research interests currently include experimental and simulated fluctuation electron microscopy (FEM) techniques as well as metallic and oxide glass structure/properties.
