Additive Manufacturing for Energy
Supervising Faculty: Chad Duty
Vidya holds a Master’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Stony Brook University (SUNY Stony Brook) and a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Anna University, India. During Master’s, Vidya worked with Dr. Koga’s research group predominantly studying polymeric thin films using microscopic techniques. Previously, as a part of her senior year thesis, she worked on an industrial research and development project in India aimed at developing epoxy/carbon nanotube composites for abrasive applications. As a Bredesen Center fellow, Vidya intends to work on developing novel nanocomposites for clean energy applications.
