Dr Morgan serves as Chair of the Department of Life and Physical Sciences and also as a mentor in the in Fisk-Vanderbilt MS-PhD Bridge Program in material sciences. His own research interests are the linear and nonlinear optical properties of glasses, the optical properties of semi-conductors, and applications of vibrational spectroscopy to condensed matter physics. He is also expert in Infrared and Raman spectroscopy. He is a funded investigator of the Center for Physics and Chemistry of Materials, Fisk University.
Dr Morgan is responsible for the teaching of physics to undergraduate and graduate students.
