BS/MS Chemical Engineering/Materials Science and Engineering ‘19, Honors


Nicholas is a senior chemical engineering student pursuing a Master’s in materials science and engineering. His first research experience was as a STAR Scholar working with Dr. Yury Gogotsi and the Drexel Nanomaterials Institute (DNI) on composites of MXenes and graphene for use in supercapacitors. He returned to DNI for his first co-op, synthesizing new MXenes and studying new applications for various MXenes. His second co-op was with Dr. Goran Karapetrov (Condensed Matter Group), growing and characterizing thin films of titanium diselenide, which he has continued during the academic year. For his third co-op, he is working with Dr. Vibha Kalra on lithium-sulfur batteries. Nicholas plans on pursuing a PhD in materials science and engineering with a focus on large-scale synthesis of 2-dimensional materials.
