Welcome! The NEST Lab develops new science and technology exploiting energy transport processes at the nanoscale to excite, educate, and employ the world. Specifically, we conduct research with interdisciplinary teams, and apply fundamental principles from science and engineering to solve problems that enable technologies supporting global energy solutions, more functional and affordable electronics, and a variety of useful products based on nanoengineering.
