About Me

Thanks for visiting my blog!

I’m currently a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at MIT, but I’ll always be a Stanford kid at heart. I’m deeply interested in semiconductor devices and their applications for solar energy conversion and logic, and my current research in ONE Lab focuses on quantum-dot and organic solar cells. Back at Stanford, I worked primarily on a new solar harvesting technique based on photon-enhanced thermionic emission (PETE), along with a summer project on nanoelectromechanical (NEM) relays, tiny mechanical switches that could serve as an alternative to silicon CMOS transistors in many low-power applications.

I occasionally leave the lab to run marathons, play tennis or basketball or soccer or frisbee, eat ice cream, loiter in bookstores, cook, and travel.

Check out my website for more about my research and current whereabouts.

This is me, circa 2007. I’m pretty sure I look exactly the same now.
