Roshan Plamthottam received his B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from Johns Hopkins University in 2018. He then joined Dr. Pei’s group later that year to pursue a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles. His research interests include nanomaterial processing and device development for flexible electronics.
Jiacheng joined Prof. Pei’s group in 2018 as a PhD student. He received his bachelor’s degree in Opto-Electronics information in Huazhong University of Science and Technology. His research concentrates on the organic/polymer light-emitting diodes and thermchromic smart windows.
Alex received his B.S. in Materials Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2019. He joined Professor Pei’s Soft Materials Research Laboratory in Fall 2019 to pursue a M.S. degree in Materials Science and Engineering. His research work/interests include polymers in electronics and biomedical applications, and formulation development.
Ziqing received her bachelor’s degree in Polymer Materials and Engineering from Beijing University of Chemical Technology in 2019. She joined Prof. Pei’s group in 2019 as a graduate student in Materials Science and Engineering. Her current research interest is organic matrix materials for plastic scintillators on radiation detection.
I completed my BS in Chemistry with a Specialization in Computing at UCLA, where I received the General Chemistry Instructional Laboratory Faculty Fellowship as well as the Geissman Award for Outstanding Achievement in Organic Chemistry. In 2020, the same year that I graduated college, I joined Professor Pei’s Soft Materials Research Laboratory in UCLA’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering as a PhD student, and my current research interests focus on solid polymer films for automatically modulated smart windows.
