Adam earned his B.S. in finance at the University of Maryland, College Park before returning to school to pursue engineering. He earned his Ph.D. in Nanoengineering at the University of California, San Diego. There, he worked in the lab of Prof. Darren Lipomi, focusing on the co-optimization of the mechanical compliance and electronic performance of polymer-based solar cells. This work was awarded the Chancellor's Dissertation Medal for the Jacobs School of Engineering, the highest honor bestowed upon graduating doctoral students. He then completed his postdoctoral work at Stanford University in the lab of Prof. Reinhold Dauskardt where he worked on improving the thermomechanical stability of perovskite solar cells.
Adam is in a state of perpetual exhaustion from chasing around his adorable toddler.
Subham joined the group in September 2019 as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. He completed his BE in Chemical Engineering from Jadavpur University, India in 2008 and later earned his MS in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur in 2010. Subham then served as a scientist in a national lab in India for 3 years before beginning his PhD work at Drexel University in 2013. He earned his PhD in Chemical Engineering in September 2018 for his work on understanding structural and photo-physical properties of inorganic cesium lead halide perovskites with Professor Aaron Fafarman. Subham's current research is focused on improving mechanical and chemical stability of perovskite photovoltaic devices.
Outside academia, Subham is interested in photography, touring, theater and playing guitar. Also he is a foodie and loves to try different cuisines.
