Topic of Dissertation: Computational Discovery of Materials for Organic Solar Cells
Bachelor of Science, Chemistry, Binghamton University, NY, Aug 2015-May 2019
My research focuses on using computational tools such as genetic algorithms, machine learning, and quantum chemical calculations to optimize the materials in organic solar cells. By examining large amounts of experimental data, we can uncover some chemical design rules and use algorithms to predict even more efficient materials than currently experimentally reported. This "virtual synthesis" can drastically speed up materials discovery and aid experimentalists in the design of new molecules.
