Vitek Stepien, a doctoral student at the University of Rochester’s Institute of Optics, knew what field he wanted to study from the beginning of his college career. He said he has been acquainted with optics ever since he was a child because his father is an optics researcher.
“I was always interested in optics and engineering, and when I went to college, I decided that I’d like to specialize in that field,” Stepien said in an interview with Photonics Media. Once in college, Stepien discovered that the areas of optics that intrigued him differed from his father’s specializations. With this knowledge, he decided to pursue higher education instead of jumping into working in the industry.
