Following graduate school, Troy worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate and later as a Research Assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, where he helped grow a multi-disciplinary team to develop novel laser-based methods to functionalize metallic surfaces for efficient heat transfer, self-cleaning surfaces, medical devices, electrolysis, and self-propelled droplet motion applications.  These experiences provide Troy with a broad technical background as well as deep technical expertise in optics, physics, nanotechnology, materials science, metrology, and electrical engineering.
