Nidhi is a senior studying Materials Science and Engineering at Penn with a minor in Math and has submatriculated into the Master’s program for MSE as well. She plans to attend graduate school and pursue a PhD. Outside of school, she enjoys hiking, listening to podcasts, and exploring the Philly food scene.
Nidhi is interested in the intersection of nanotechnology, electronic devices, and sustainability. Her work in the group focuses on the photocatalytic and physical properties of TMDs.
Natalia is a rising junior studying Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Physics with a business and technology concentration. She is from Bogotá, Colombia and plans to go back to work on the development of solar energy in Latin America. In addition to academics, Natalia enjoys playing volleyball, swimming, and drawing.
Her research interests are innovative ways to facilitate the use of renewable energy in nanotechnology, especially solar energy. More specifically, she explores transfer methods of van der Waals materials to reduce interface contamination in heterostructures.
Bhaskar is a rising junior in the VIPER program studying electrical engineering and physics. He is from New Canaan, Connecticut. After graduation, he hopes to work in the R&D of sustainable technology. Outside of academics, Bhaskar enjoys playing the piano, biking around Philly, and boxing.
Previously, Bhaskar has worked in Professor Aaswath Raman’s lab. There, he designed nanophotonic, radiative sky cooling materials for sustainable systems in the water-energy nexus. In Professor Jariwala’s lab, Bhaskar pursues simulation-driven design of novel nanophotonic, optoelectronic, and photovoltaic devices.
Kelotchi is a rising junior at the University of Humacao Puerto Rico majoring in Physics applied to Electronics. Once he finishes his major, he plans on applying to graduate school. Outside of the lab, he enjoys playing basketball and volleyball.
