Cross-Resnick First Year Fellow 2018
Zachery is a graduate student in materials science. Originally from Barbados, he was a member of the VIPER program (Vagelos Integrated Program in Energy Research) at the University of Pennsylvania where he earned a BA in chemistry and a BSE in materials science and engineering. He also conducted several research projects based on sustainability. These included using vanadium oxide nanoparticles to make smart windows to regulate indoor temperatures instead of using heating and air conditioning, and using ceria nano plates in combination with precious metal nano particles to make cheaper, more effective catalytic converters for vehicles. Although not certain what his research at Caltech will entail, due to his long-term goal of aiding in the ongoing transition to renewable energy sources gloabaly, he hopes to be able to do research in the field of energy storage or renewable energy production.
