Energy Science and Nanotechnology lab is directed by Mona Zebarjadi, a professor of Mechnical Engineering at Rutgers University. We are mainly interested in designing materials with altered thermal and electrical properties. The main applications are in thermal management, semiconductor devices and energy conversion technologies such as thermoelectrics. Our design is based on fundamental understanding of electron and phonon transport in small length and time scales. We are a primarily modeling group and are more like a bridge between experimentalists and fundamental theorists. Most of our materials design is targeted for real systems and we are aiming for fabrication and characterization of these materials. You can find more details by looking at our research, publications and News tabs
Undergradsare always welcome in our lab. Please refere to our facilities page to see what we are working on.
Graduate students: Please contact Dr. Zebarjadi directly.
Please note that if you are from physics (condensed matter) or electrical engineering background, you will be a better match to our group.
A Postdoc position shared with the physics department is available. Strong theoretical and experimental background is desired including expertise on Graphene and 2D materials as well as familarity with STM.
