Zeeshan Ahmad

I am a third year PhD student at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University advised by Venkat Viswanathan. I work in the areas of computational materials science and condensed matter physics with applications to energy storage. I graduated from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi in May 2015 with a B.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering, winning the institute silver medal. Here is a short vita.
