Rishon Benjamin is investigating development of high-efficiency polymer electrolytes for use in fuel cells, with an eye toward making such innovations both clean enough and cheap enough to be practical (advisor: Prof. Yossef Elabd). Rishon was also a STAR student in Dr. Elabd’s lab.

In addition, he conducted research with Dr. Pavel Grinfeld in the Math department. His work there involved the computational and experimental analysis of the behavior of physical systems such as fluid films using MATLAB.
