Aditya received a Bachelors in Technology in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in 2011, where he was a recipient of the Academic Excellence Awards ('08,'09,'10) and Gold Medal ('11) for graduating top of the class in Materials Science. In 2010 he was recognized with the Young Engineers' and Scientists' Award from the Honda Foundation, Japan and earlier by a scholarship from the Jindal Foundation. In the past he has worked on research projects involving graphene, CVD-carbon fibers, non Newtonian flows and friction modeling at Northwestern University, Purdue University, Indian Institute of Science and JNCASR Bangalore, respectively. Currently, he is a PhD student in Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford University. He is working on the experimental and theoretical analysis of phonon transport within periodic and aperiodic superlattices, with applications in quantum cascade lasers.
