    Dr. Rowe is an Assistant professor of Mechatronics Engineering at Middle Tennessee State University. He earned his Ph.D. from Virginia Commonwealth University, a B.S. degree in Mathematics from Morehouse College, and B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University as part of the dual degree program. Prior to attending graduate school, Dr. Rowe held the position of Process Engineer II at Cree Inc., where he worked on gallium nitride based blue and green Light Emitting Diode growth by Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition. His dissertation research focused on the growth and characterization of high-performance doped halides.  Dr. Rowe also worked on the development of enriched lithium indium diselenide (LISe™) as a high-efficiency thermal neutron detector that yielded an R&D 100 Award.  In 2014, Dr. Rowe joined the Material Science and Application Group in the Physics Department at Fisk University as a Fisk-Vanderbilt Bridge Postdoctoral Fellow. He then joined the group as a Research Assistant Professor in 2017 and now holds adjunct status at both Fisk and Vanderbilt University. Dr. Rowe joined Middle Tennessee State University as a tenure track faculty in 2019 where his research is focused on developing novel halide and oxide based bulk and ceramic scintillator materials for nuclear nonproliferation and medical use. Dr. Rowe teaches undergraduate courses in Electrical Power and Machinery, and Electrical Circuit Analysis.
