M.S. Electrical Engineering


Sriharsha Sudhindra received his B.S. in Electronics and Communication Engineering (2018) from Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology, Bengaluru, India and his M.S. in Electrical Engineering (2021) from the University of California, Riverside, USA, respectively. After completing his B.S. degree, he worked at the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, India where he gained expertise in device characterization tools. He joined Prof. Balandin’s Center group in Fall 2019 as a graduate student and received his M.S. with a thesis titled “The Role of the Surface Roughness and Filler Size on Performance of Graphene Based Thermal Interface Materials” and is currently pursuing his Ph.D degree. He conducts research on Quasi-1D nanodevices and composites. He also continues his work on thermal interface materials with graphene fillers. His expertise includes device fabrication, electrical characterization, liquid phase exfoliation, composite preparation, thermal characterization of materials and surface topography characterization.
