Jamey was born in Harrisburg, PA in 1990. He received his B.S. with honors in Materials Science and Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University in 2013. While at Penn State, Jamey collaborated with researchers at the University of Dundee and the University of Erlangen-Nuremburg to improve piezoelectric micromachined ultrasonic transducer performance for high resolution ultrasonic imaging and acoustic tweezing applications.
While at Penn State, his efforts were largely focused on refining sputtered PZT deposition procedures for enhanced transducer reliability and improving transducer fabrication processes. During his semester abroad, Jamey conducted acoustic characterization and finite element simulations of the devices at the University of Dundee in the United Kingdom and University of Erlangen-Nuremburg in Germany, respectively. He joined the Integrated MEMS Laboratory in the summer of 2013 to pursue his graduate studies.
In his free time, Jamey competes in alpine skiing and cycling. He also enjoys photography, traveling, and painting.
