Speaker Biography (Alexie Kolpak)
Alexie Kolpak obtained a B.A. in Biochemistry and a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania. She went on to do a postdoc in Applied Physics at Yale University before starting her current position as a postdoc with Jeffrey C. Grossman in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT. Her research interests include photocatalysis and photovoltaics, solar thermal fuels, complex oxide heterostructures, surface and interface phenomena, and first-principles materials design.
Company Profile (MIT - Department of Materials Science)
The Department of Materials Science at MIT, in the group of Jeffrey C. Grossman, employs theoretical and computational modeling tools to understand the physical and chemical properties of materials all the way from the atomic- to the macroscopic-scale. We apply this knowledge to design and optimize novel materials and systems with enhanced properties that will enable wide-spread adoption of solar energy storage and conversion technologies.
