Leadership Team

Thomas Brukilacchio

Dr. Brukilacchio, President of Innovations in Optics, began his career with both a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Optical Engineering from the prestigious Institute of Optics at the University of Rochester.

 

He spent several years in aerospace R&D and medical device development prior to co-founding the Company and receiving his Ph.D. from the School of Engineering at Tufts University. Dr. Brukilacchio’s dissertation work was completed at The NMR Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, in affiliation with Harvard Medical School’s Department of Radiology and the Photon Migration Laboratory.

Sarah Harpley Brukilacchio

Ms. Brukilacchio, Financial Officer of Innovations in Optics, began her career as a research analyst at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital NMR Laboratory after earning a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Regis College.

 

Upon completing her degree in Manufacturing Engineering from Boston University, she subsequently joined the Vicor Corporation as a manufacturing engineer, where she was part of a team developing high density DC to DC power supplies. In addition to bringing manufacturing experience and perspective to Innovations in Optics, Sarah Brukilacchio’s guidance in the area of strategic planning has been instrumental in the Company’s growth.
