Thuc Mai graduated with a B.S. from Syracuse University in 2011. He worked with Prof. Alan Middleton and Prof. Matthew LaHaye in the Physics Department. His primary interest is on novel spin properties in condensed matter systems. Upon joining the Valdes Aguilar Group, Thuc worked on THz detection using a rotating polarizer. His most recent project is on THz spectroscopy of multiferroics (SFSO, BaM). Thuc is currently working towards the generation and detection of broadband circularly polarized THz pulses.
In his spare time, Thuc enjoys playing video games. He also plays the ukulele.
