Dr. Aditya Sood

aditsood@stanford.edu

PhD MSE 2017. Postdoc at SLAC national lab, Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences [https://sites.google.com/view/adityasood]. Aditya's research focused on nanoscale thermal transport in novel 2D materials & devices, and defect-rich crystals. This included the demonstration of a nanoscale thermal transistor in MoS2, and the first direct measurements of heat transport near a grain boundary. He received the MRS Graduate Student Gold Award in 2017. After graduating, he was briefly a post-doc with Prof. Eric Pop in the department of Electrical Engineering - there he studied phonon transport in 2D heterostructures and developed models for thermal management of monolithic 3D ICs. Earlier, he got his B.Tech from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, where he was a recipient of the Academic Excellence Award ('08, '09, '10) and the MSE department Gold Medal ('11).
