Michelle Sherrott

Graduate Student



Michelle is a graduate student in the Materials Science option. She joined the group in the fall of 2012 and is interested in resonant optics in 2D materials. She works on plasmonics and non-linear optics in patterned graphene. She is also interested in the optical properties of monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides (eg: MoS2), and is exploring the potential of these materials for photovoltaic applications. Michelle is a fellow of the Resnick Sustainability Institute at Caltech.
