John's research focuses on correlated electrical and structural characterization of graphene nanoelectronics using in-situ transmission electron microscopy to help provide rational decision-making in graphene’s utilization for next generation high performance devices. He was the recipient of an NSF IGERT fellowship, and is a member of APS, SPIE and the IEEE.
The IBM Ph.D. Fellowship Awards Program is an intensely competitive worldwide program, which honors exceptional Ph.D. students who have an interest in solving problems that are important to IBM and fundamental to innovation in many academic disciplines and areas of study. These include: computer science and engineering (including cyber security and cloud computing), electrical and mechanical engineering, physical sciences (including chemistry, material sciences, and physics), mathematical sciences (including analytics of massive scale data with uncertainty, operations research, and optimization), public sector and business sciences (including urban policy and analytics, social technologies, learning systems and natural language understanding), and service science, management, and engineering (SSME).
