Physics PhD Student, Koder Lab

Job Title




My research involves thermodynamic and structural characterization of artificial mini elastins to evaluate their potential as caloric cooling materials. By establishing performance metrics when they undergo a refrigeration cycle, the goal is to assess the use of elastocaloric materials in cooling technologies that have a low environmental impact as opposed to traditional vapor compression refrigeration systems.
Apart from research work, I enjoy playing chess, painting, and reading poetry.
