I received my B.S. in chemistry from the University of North Georgia in 2010. From there, I attended the Georgia Institute of Technology in the fall of 2010 under the advisement of Professor Jean-Luc Brédas. In the summer of 2015, I completed my Ph.D. work with a thesis titled “Molecular-Scale Understanding of Electronic Polarization in Organic Molecular Crystals”. Following my thesis studies, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow under the advisement of Professor Jean-Luc Brédas at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. There, my work focused on understanding electronic polarization and charge separation in high–performance organic electronic materials.
After nearly three years in Saudi Arabia, I studied as a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Kentucky under the advisement of Professor Chad Risko to investigate the structure-property relationships within conjugated polymer systems. Polymer systems for molecular dynamics typically compose 1,000,000 - 3,000,000 atoms and require atomistic resolution to fully elucidate the structure-property relationships. I currently work as a research scientist at Universal Display Corporation to better understand the properties of organic light emitting devices.
