David Giltner is a laser scientist turned photonics engineer, as well as a speaker, musician, outdoor enthusiast and father. He has a Ph.D. in physics and now works as a photonics engineer designing high tech products employing lasers and other optical technologies. Although he did not follow the “conventional” path of a physicist that might lead one to a career as a professor, he has found a very rewarding career “Turning Science into Things People Need”. By compiling wisdom from other successful scientists in a 50 Interviews format David will help others who are following a similar path from a background in science research to a career in industry.
