DMSE Special Seminar: Bolin Liao
Tuesday, Feb 28, 2017
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Title: Understanding Transport and Interaction of Microscopic Energy Carriers at the Single-Mode Level: Computation and Experiment About: Bolin Liao is currently a Kavli Nanoscience Institute Prize Postdoctoral Fellow at the California Institute of Technology. Bolin obtained his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from MIT in March 2016, advised by Prof. Gang Chen. His Ph.D. thesis focused on developing theoretical, computational and experimental tools to understand transport and interaction of microscopic energy carriers in thermoelectric materials. At Caltech, Bolin is working in Prof. Ahmed Zewail's lab, where spectroscopic and imaging tools based on ultrafast electron beam are being developed. Bolin is a recipient of the Wunsch Foundation Silent Hoist and Crane Award for Outstanding Thesis from MIT Mechanical Engineering, and the Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Students Abroad.
