Mokshin Suri, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, awarded the Knight@KIC Fellowship

Mokshin Suri, a materials science and engineering Ph.D. student working with Professor Tobias Hanrath from the Smith School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, was recently awarded the 2023‐2024 Knight@KIC Engineering Graduate Fellowship; the fellowship is funded by the Kavli Institute at Cornell (KIC) for Nanoscale Science. 

Suri received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from UT Austin in 2019 before coming to Cornell University to pursue graduate studies. His research interests include quantum dot photovoltaics, nano-bio hybrid photosynthetic systems, and catalysis. Under the Kavli Institute, Suri studies the design of nanocrystal catalysts for electrochemical conversion of harmful greenhouse gasses (methane and carbon dioxide) to value-added products such as methanol and sustainable fuels. He aims to develop fundamental understanding of electrochemical greenhouse gas conversion while also exploring commercialization implications for this technology.
