Biography: 

Kevin Grossklaus received a B.S. in 2005 and M.S. in 2007, both in materials science engineering from Purdue University. He received his Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from the University of Michigan in 2012. Before joining Tufts University, Grossklaus spent three years working as a process development and module engineer in the Intel Corporation's Portland Technology Development (PTD) Thin Films group. During that time, he worked to develop materials and CMOS manufacturing processes for next-generation microprocessors at Intel's research and development fabs. Grossklaus’ research interests include the materials science of semiconductor film deposition and characterization, with a particular focus on films for optoelectronic and energy harvesting applications.
