Megan Phelan

Graduate Student

Megan is a PhD student in the Materials Science option and joined the Atwater group in September 2017. She graduated from Yale in 2015 with a B.S. in Physics, and her current interests are in high-efficiency photovoltaic devices. Her previous research experience includes capacitance-voltage profiling of III-V photovoltaics, as well as a brief stint at CERN researching Z—>tt decays. Outside of the lab, Megan can be found swimming, running, cooking, and playing water polo.
