Dan Congreve received his B.S. and M.S. from Iowa State in 2011, working with Vik Dalal studying defect densities of nano-crystalline and amorphous silicon. He received his PhD from MIT in 2015, studying under Marc Baldo. His thesis work focused on photonic energy conversion using singlet fission and triplet fusion as a downconverting and upconverting process, respectively. He is joining the Rowland Institute in August 2016. His current research interests include interactions between heterogeneous excitonic materials and the applications of those interactions, such as solar and light emitting diode technologies.
Mahesh Gangishetty joined Dr. Congreve's lab in January 2017, after finishing his PhD at University of Saskatchewan. He is interested in excitonic science and applications. His research focuses on the properties of excitonic materials for light harvesting applications. Outside of lab, Mahesh enjoys swimming and watching movies.
