October 28, 2020

By Rachel Steere

Assistant Professor William “Billy” Putnam joined the UC Davis Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in November 2018. His area of research is in optics and photonics. Specifically, he works on understanding and controlling electron and photon interactions at ultrafast timescales and ultrasmall spatial dimensions.
