1. UNLV Research and Mentorship Program (RAMP), 2019-2020 cohort – is designed to provide undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to gain valuable research/scholarly/creative skills and mentorship skills, respectively. In this program, I am working as graduate student mentor with an undergraduate student mentee in Perovskite related research.
2. UNLV Graduate College Mentorship Certification program (GCMC), 2019-2020 cohort- is a year-long professional development program that provides graduate students with the skills and knowledge necessary to be effectively mentored and serve as a mentor in higher education settings.
3. UNLV Grad Rebel Ambassador, 2019-2020 cohort- Ambassadors are highly visible members of the Graduate College team helping to build a strong graduate student Rebel community and strengthen ties between the Graduate College and alumni and community members. From this program, I had the chance to talk and be a part of the panel discussion in “Undergraduate to Graduate Transition” workshop and “Nevada State College, Graduate School Trek” workshop.
4. 10th annual OCA Las Vegas mentorship program- I have been selected in this program as a mentee where I will have the opportunity to connect with a mentor from Las Vegas professional community and build up my professional development skills.
On 2017 Fall, I have started working as a Research Assistant in department of Mechanical Engineering at UNLV. My research is on fabrication and analysis of highly efficient and stable Lead-free Perovskite photovoltaic material to avoid the toxicity of Lead. My current focus is on Cs2SnI6 Perovskite and I am analyzing the effect of additives such as SnF2, Pyrazine and Guanidinum Thiocyanate on the optical and structural properties of that Perovskite. I am also working on the Perovskite device fabrication and its diode characteristics analysis. In future, I would like to work on another novel Perovskite , which is Cs2GeI6. Both this materials are of A2BX6 structured Perovskite and possess promising photovoltaic properties.
