Research

Dr. Aristide Gumyusenge has accepted an offer to join us as the Merton C. Flemings (1951) Assistant Professor of Materials Science and Engineering in January 2022. Dr. Gumyusenge is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at Stanford University; he received a BS in chemistry from Wofford College in 2015 and a PhD in chemistry from Purdue University in 2019. He is originally from Rwanda where he grew up and attended primary and secondary school. His research background and interests are in semiconducting polymers, their processing and characterization, and their unique role in the future of electronics. Through novel processing strategies, especially large-area manufacturing of electronic devices, he is interested in relating molecular design to device performance, and he is excited to bring those interests to MIT to further develop his ideas.
