Dr. Davis earned his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Auckland, New Zealand. He has been a member of the Optical Society of America since 1985 (senior member, 2009), The International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) since 1987 (senior member, 2011), the Biophysical Society since 2001, and the American Physical Society since 2007. Since 2007, he has served as BH Goethert Professor of Physics in the Center for Laser Applications at the University of Tennessee Space Institute. He is engaged in projects in nanophotonics, single-molecule spectroscopy, micro/nano-fluidics, flow cytometry, and femtosecond laser materials processing. His research interests include biomedical imaging and applied technology for non-invasive diagnostics and sensors.
