Alumni Goldhirsh-Resnick First-Year Graduate Research Fellow
Nicholas graduated from Caltech with a PhD in mechanical engineering. He researched thermal transport in three-dimensional nanoarchitected materials in Prof. Austin Minnich's research group. Prior to attending Caltech, Nicholas received his BS in mechanical engineering and electrical engineering/computer science from MIT. As an undergraduate at MIT, Nick became interested in energy generation and storage. With the Device Research Lab, he researched superhydrophobic condensation on nanostructured surfaces. Engineered surfaces provide enhanced heat transfer performance that can increase the efficiency of power plants.
Nick is currently a Systems Engineer at Northrop Grumman.
