Energy Science and Nanotechnology lab is directed by Mona Zebarjadi, a joint professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Materials Science Engineering at University of Virginia. We are interested in designing materials with altered thermal and electrical properties and new hybrid energy conversion devices. The main applications are in thermal management, semiconductor devices and energy conversion technologies such as thermoelectrics. Our design is based on fundamental understanding of electron and phonon transport in small length and time scales. Most of our materials design is targeted for real systems and we are aiming for fabrication and characterization of these materials. You can find more details by looking at our research, publications and News tabs
PhD opening: We currently have an opening for Fall 17 or Spring 18. Please contact the PI directly if you are interested.
