At NREL Since: 

Kevin Mistry graduated from Harvey Mudd College in 2007 with a B.S. in Physics. His undergraduate research included experimental and computational work in condensed matter, plasma, and optical physics. At Harvey Mudd, he studied electron thermalization dynamics in thin gold films using second harmonic generation. After graduation, Kevin spent a year in Austria on a Fulbright fellowship collaborating with an ultracold atoms group in Innsbruck. In 2008, he began his graduate studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder and joined NREL the following summer to work with Dr. Jeffrey Blackburn exploring the electrical and optical properties of single-walled carbon nanotubes.
