Professor David Guerra


This photograph of the HOLO research team was taken in Logan Utah in the Spring of 1999.  I am on the far left, along with Steve Moody (ORCA Inc.), Jason, Saunders & Tom Wilkerson (Utah State Univ.), and Geary Schwemmer (NASA-GSFC).

I am currently an Associate Professor of Physics at Saint Anselm College.  I have previously taught at Western Maryland College, Montgomery College, and The Bullis School. I received my B.A. in physics from Middlebury College and his M.S. and Ph. D. in physics from the American University in Washington, D.C. As a graduate student and National Research Council (NRC) postdoctoral researcher, I developed laser systems, in the photonics group at NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), for atmospheric sensing projects. Presently, I am working with a group from NASA-GSFC's Laboratory for Atmospheres, on the development of a novel lidar (laser radar) system that employs a hologram of a point source as its receiver and scan mirror. The PHASERS system is located on the roof of the Goulet Science Center on the campus of Saint Anselm College.
