John has built on his practical use and experience in electron microscopy, pulling from an over 30-year career, that has focused on the materials and biological sciences. He has used a variety of techniques and instruments including an extensive working knowledge of electron & light microscopy, and x-ray spectroscopy & diffractometer. Before coming to USC, he has had appointments in both Material testing laboratories and the Biological engineering industry, where he refined his skills in electron microscopy.
Senior Scientist - Life Sciences
