Wanyi NiePerovskite synthesis and material characterization
Wanyi Nie joined Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) as a Postdoctoral Associate working on perovskite-based photovoltaic devices since 2013, and was converted to Staff Scientist in 2016. During this time she developed a novel technique called “hot-casting” to deposit high crystalline hybrid perovskite thin films. This work was published in the Science Journal, and was rated as one of the most “highly cited papers in this field.” Wanyi currently leads a team working on perovskite growth and their applications for radiation detection.
Michelle DolgosPerovskite synthesis and material characterization
Michelle Dolgos is an expert in the synthesis and characterization of perovskites used in electronic applications. She received her BSc in Chemistry at Hillsdale College, then attended the University of Tennessee for her MSc where she worked on silver (II) fluorides. She then attended Ohio State University for her PhD in the Woodward Group, where she studied structure-property relationships of complex oxides. She had the opportunity to do a postdoctoral fellowship abroad in the Rosseinsky Group at the University of Liverpool where her main focus was the synthesis and characterization of novel piezoelectric perovskites. After 5 years as an Assistant Professor at Oregon State University, she moved to the University of Calgary in 2018 as faculty in the Department of Chemistry where she works on the rational design of electronic materials for energy applications.
Elías TorresGraphene transistor design, fabrication, and characterization
Elías Torres holds a licentiate in Solid State Physics by the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM), a MSc in Nanotechnology by Lund University/UCM, and a PhD in Graphene electronics by the University of Exeter. He obtained a Marie Curie fellowship to keep researching graphene and 2D materials within Graphenea, where he now leads the Foundry division. His expertise resides in device fabrication and semiconductor physics, where he has published works within the field of optoelectronics, flexible electronics, and sensing.
Quanxi JiaElectrical readout design, detector assembly, and electrical characterization
Quanxi Jia is an Empire Innovation Professor at University at Buffalo (UB). He is also the Scientific Director of New York State Center for Excellence in Materials Informatics. Prior to joining UB in 2016, he was the Director of the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies, a DOE Nanoscale Science Research Center operated jointly by Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories. His research includes the study of processing-structure–property relationships of nanostructured and multifunctional materials, and the development of microelectronic/electro-optic devices.
Ed CazalasX-ray characterization
Edward Cazalas has been an Assistant Professor of Nuclear Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Utah since 2018. His primary research focus is in areas of radiation detection, dosimetry, and radiation effects. Before coming to University of Utah, Prof. Cazalas was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Air Force Institute of Technology at WPAFB, Ohio, and a Nuclear Security Postdoctoral Fellow at the RAND Corporation. He has a decade of experience working on graphene-based devices.
