Project Title

Renewable Energy & Energy Harvesting

Project Description

I am working with Professor Patrick Fay to research and develop more efficient bypass and blocking diodes for solar cells

In addition, I plan to develop a series of educational modules describing the processes and benefits of renewable energy and energy harvesting.

Department Affiliation

Department of Electrical Engineering

Courses Related to My Project

Courses related to my project include the Integrated Engineering & Business Practices sequence, as well as technical courses within my department such as Photonics, Power Systems, a well as energy studies minor electives.

Business/Entrepreneurship Opportunities

I plan to utilize the experience I gain from business/energy courses and other campus resources, like the ND IDEA Center, to build a plan about how to grow and market the educational modules I am developing.

Global Perspective

In the summer 2019, I will be participating in Notre Dame’s Engineering Study Abroad Program in Dublin, Ireland. While there, I plan to meet with renewable energy researchers at University College Dublin and discuss their research on renewable energy and energy harvesting.

Community Engagement

I plan to take my educational modules to organizations and schools [presenting at the middle-school level or above] to schools in the South Bend area, in and around Jackson, Mich., and at the Cook Library and Arts Center in Grand Rapids, Mich.
