Johanna Raphael has over 10 years of industry experience, having worked as a Test Engineer at Phonon Corporation in Simsbury, Conn., on digital waveform generator product lines as well as radio frequency design support. She has a Master of Science and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Connecticut, where she is completing her doctorate in Electrical Engineering. Her primary research interest and master’s thesis topic is heteroepitaxy of semiconductors, specifically nitride-based semiconductors. She co-authored a textbook on the subject, titled Heteroepitaxy of Semiconductors: Theory, Growth and Characterization, 2nd edition, published in 2017. Her research on heteroepitaxy is rooted in electrical engineering but overlaps with other areas of interest, such as material science and renewable engineering technology such as solar cells.
