ECE welcomes Dr. O’Hara
The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering welcomes Dr. John O’Hara to OSU as a tenure track assistant professor. Dr. O’Hara graduated from OSU with his PhD in 2003 after completing his research on the experimental study of a quasi-optic synthetic phased-array terahertz imaging system. Upon graduation, he joined Las Alamos National Laboratory as a post-doctoral fellow and then member of the technical staff within the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies. Dr. O’Hara has over 50 publications and has several patents. He has managed approximately $10M in research funding at Las Alamos.
He founded and is President of Wavetech, LLC, which specializes in robotics, controls and automation. Dr. O’Hara has served the School since 2011 as an adjunct professor with teaching and research responsibilities. He will continue to do so as a tenure track professor with primary duties to rebuild and grow the School’s THz laboratory facility.
The School is very excited that Dr. O’Hara agreed to join our team. He is student-focused and is highly committed to both teaching and research excellence.
