Sean Garnsey
Doctoral Candidate
Electronic Materials & Devices

Sean began his research within MeMDRL in the Summer 2020. He is studying reactive inkjet printing methods wherein multifunctional materials are synthesized in-situ from precursor materials. If realized, reactive systems show promise in the areas of metamaterials and sensor devices.
