Gene joined SanD in the academic year following his summer internship in 2013. He obtained his MS Physics degree in June 2016 with support from the DOST ASTHRD Program. In his master's thesis Gene investigated the role of disorder in topological insulators, a topic that he intends to explore further in his PhD studies. He has been an instructor at the National Institute of Physics and currently does simulation and modeling work for PHIVOLCS.
