Deployment of Nanowire-based Energy Conversion | Devices: Opportunities and Barriers


Dr. Sreeram Vaddiraju is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University. He started working at the university in the fall of 2009. Apriori, he received his academic training at various academic institutions and national labs, including the University of Louisville, NASA Ames Research Center and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Currently, a bulk of his research is focused on development of inexpensive and efficient nanowire-based renewable energy devices and systems (e.g., thermoelectrics, photovoltaics, photocatalysts for solar hydrogen production and water disinfection). This overall vision of his research effort is to streamline the production of nanowire-based energy conversion devices in a manner similar to that achieved with drug production by the pharmaceutical industry and integrated chip (IC) production by the electronics industry. His research work has been/is currently being supported by the Department of Defense (DOD, Army), NSF/DOE thermoelectrics partnership, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Department of Energy (DOE), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the US department of Agriculture (USDA). Texas A&M University has recognized his efforts at excelling in teaching through a few awards, including the Fluor Distinguished Teaching Award in 2014 and a Phillips 66 First Year Faculty Fellowship in 2016.
