Notable Recent Achievements

Research highlight

My research focus is on integrating theory and experiment to the design, synthesis, and characterization of semiconductor heterostructures with programmable light harvesting and charge transfer for photocatalysis.

As a graduate student at UB I enjoy being with friendly and supportive faculty and colleagues along with state-of-the-art instrumentation and facilities. The best part of my PhD career is having a wonderful advisor and awesome labmates. It has also been a great opportunity to work with collaborators within and outside UB.

Outside of lab, I enjoy spending time with my husband and travelling with family and friends.

Congratulations, Nuwanthi!
