Postdoctoral Researcher

Christopher J. Benjamin

In 2009 he obtained a B.S. degree in Biology from the University of New Orleans. He spent 3.5 years as an undergraduate researcher in organic chemistry focusing on the synthesis of novel macrocyclic compounds used as self-assembled, supramolecular complexes in various host/guest chemistries. In 2015 he obtained a PhD in chemistry from Purdue University. His thesis work involved an interdisciplinary approach utilizing surface chemistry to fabricate bi-functional, non-fouling surfaces directly onto transmission electron microscope (TEM) grids with various capture chemistries, as a means of rapid purification of biological specimens for single particle 3D reconstruction. Currently, he is working as a postdoctoral fellow in electrical engineering at Purdue University. His research interests include synthesizing and utilizing various organic compounds for n-type and p-type doping of 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMD) devices, and fabricating steep slope tunneling transistors.

Graduate Students

Ruchit Mehta

He graduated with a Dual degree (B.tech + M.tech) in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India in 2010. Specializing in microelectronics, his master's thesis involved optimization of SOI-Finfet devices, evaluating their device-circuit interaction and scaling behavior for System-on Chip applications. Currently he is pursuing doctoral studies in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue and is interested in the field of nanofabrication and nanoelectronics. He has successfully demonstrated a novel Cu-graphene hybrid interconnect system with improved electrical and thermal properties. He has also studied graphene based bio-molecular sensors.
