I graduated with a B.S. in Advanced Chemistry from Oregon State University. There I studied cellulose nanocrystals both in synthesis and novel application. Currently I am working on the electron mobility in bulk-heterojunction OPV’s.


The optimization of mobility especially with regards to morphology and processing techniques will hopefully increase device efficiency in solar cells.
