Aaron Katzenmeyer

Aaron Katzenmeyer is a National Research Council (NRC) Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Energy Research Group. He received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Ohio University; a M.S. in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology jointly from Delft University of Technology, Netherlands and KU Leuven, Belgium; and a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of California, Davis. His doctoral research, performed at Sandia National Laboratories, included fabrication and optoelectronic characterization of carbon nanotube photodiodes and in-situ carrier transport measurements on individual nanowires. Aaron is working with Andrea Centrone to develop a new scanning probe technique that will provide simultaneous maps of topographical, chemical, and thermal properties with nanoscale resolution.
