Research

I am currently a postdoctoral research associate at Brown University advised by Prof. N. P. Padture and Prof. B. W. Sheldon, after acquiring my Ph.D. in Microengineering at Ecole Federale Polytechnique de Lausanne (EPFL), under the supervision of Prof. Y. Bellouard. My research circulates around material synthesis, applied mechanics, and artificial intelligence to produce nanocomposites for energy storage and structural applications. More broadly, I envision the use of nanocomposites for ensuring a sustainable future.

Highlights from my past and current work include the development of the toughest battery electrolyte to-date and the first hybrid neural network to address the extremely challenging issue of mechanical testing at microscales.
