Jonathan was born in Columbus, Ohio. He received his BSE degree in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in 2004 with highest honors and his PhD in Applied Physics from Harvard University in 2010 under the supervision of Professor Federico Capasso. He was an NSF Graduate Fellow, and his dissertation focused on the optical properties of self-assembled metallodielectric colloidal clusters. Afterwards, he was a Beckman Institute Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, where he researched epidermal-based stretchable electronics systems under the supervision of Professor John Rogers.
Sage is interested in far too many research areas, but is currently focusing on fundamental understanding and potential applications of nanophotonic structures, especially in conjunction with stretchable materials. When not working in these areas, she enjoys walking, dancing, cooking, baking, sewing, knitting, spending time with friends, hanging out with her dogs, and sleeping.
