Nav Nidhi Rajput
Nav Nidhi Rajput received her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Engineering at Louisiana State University specializing in molecular dynamics studies of ionic liquids (ILs) confined inside nanoporous materials for applications in electrochemistry. She worked as a postdoctoral research associate in the Energy Technologies Area Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, California, where she worked on developing infrastructure for high-throughput computations for the Joint Center for Energy Storage (JCESR) and Electrolyte Genome, which is a coupled first-principle and classical molecular dynamics code-base for rapid understanding and design of optimal electrolytes. Her research group at Tufts seeks to not just understand but also predict the properties of fluids and solid/fluid interfaces by gaining a fundamental understanding of synthesis-structure-property relationships.
