CEIDP 2023

Oct 16, 2023

IEEE Conference on Electrical Insulation and Dielectric Phenomena (CEIDP) this year was special, marking the centennial edition of the conference that began in 1920 in Manhattan, NY. I presented our most recent work from the Avalanche Energy High Voltage group, titled "The Aging Effect of Surface Flashovers on Insulator Surfaces in Vacuum: A Case Study."

As a member of DEIS-Young Professionals, I helped organize the first-ever student award session,  multiple featured talks, and interviews with the veterans of the society.

Dr. Craig Miller's Visit

Aug 23, 2023

I had the distinct honor of hosting Dr. Craig Miller today, a pioneering expert in the field of high-voltage vacuum phenomena, such as surface flashovers and arcs. We are fortunate that he resides in close proximity to the Avalanche Energy office, where we are continually pushing the boundaries of high-voltage vacuum technologies. I am eagerly looking forward to collaborating with him and benefiting from his extensive, five-decade-long experience in this domain.

Talk at 2023 ISDEIV

June 26, 2023

I had the pleasure of presenting our most recent paper at the 2023 IEEE International Symposium on Discharges and Electrical Insulation in Vacuum (ISDEIV) in Okinawa, Japan. The paper, which will be published soon, delves into our findings on the chemical impact of DC conditioning on the cathode surface in a high vacuum environment.

Podcast with Jason Cavness
