Dr. Hadi Abroshan joined Prof. Jean-Luc Bredas’ group as a Postdoctoral Fellow in July 2018. Here, Hadi conducts research projects for computation-based design of new materials pertaining to organic electronics application with immense technological impacts, e.g., organic solar cells and organic light-emitting diodes.
Prior to joining School of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Georgia Tech, Dr. Abroshan was a Postdoctoral Researcher in Prof. Jens K. Nørskov’s group in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University till the end of June 2018. At the SUNCAT Center for Interface Science and Catalysis in Stanford University, Hadi conducted multiple computational/modeling research projects to design and develop efficient elector-catalysts for a variety of reactions of importance for clean energy, including oxygen reduction/evolution reactions, and water oxidation reaction for synthesis of H2 and H2O2.
Hadi received his PhD in Chemistry from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in May 2017. During his PhD, he worked with Professors Hyung J. Kim and Rongchao Jin to develop expertise in computational physical chemistry. Hadi’s research in CMU was centered around molecular modeling of nanostructures, polymer electrolytes, and ionic liquids for energy, environmental, and catalysis applications.
