HarshEducational Background:

B.Tech. in Metallurgical Engineering and Materials Science, Indian Institute of Technology – Bombay, 2013

M.S. in Materials Science and Engineering, UC Davis (2013-Present)

Research Interests:
Harsh is a graduate student currently working on mesoporous Silica and Silica-Alumina systems. His work involves extensive characterization of the Silica-Alumino phase diagram and 3-D tomography of sintered mesoporous Silica samples. He has worked on various metal alloys and ceramic materials in the past. As in intern at the National Institute for Materials Science in Japan, Harsh worked on Ti-Pd high temperature ternary shape memory alloy systems. For his senior thesis he worked on Lithium Disilicate Glass ceramics for Dental applications.
