Graduate Student
Srinivasan Venkatesh

Srinivasan graduated from the University of Florida with a B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering and in Chemistry. He worked as an undergraduate research assistant with Professor Peng Jiang exploring templating and microfabrication techniques. He completed his Honors Thesis work on the novel synthesis of a patterned anti-reflective coating of ITO on a glass substrate. In the fall of 2010, Srinivasan began graduate school at UCSB working with Professors Craig Hawker and Michael Chabinyc. He is currently in his second year of graduate level research at UCSB.


Srinivasan's current research is focused on creating a tunable crosslinked polymer dielectric layer and exploring its application in capacitors and OFETs. He is also working on researching organic thermoelectric materials, specifically, trying to investigate and decouple organic and thermal properties of organic materials.
