This talk will provide an overview of collaborative activities within the India-US Joint Networked Centre on Nanomaterials for Energy. Numerous examples of fruitful joint research initiated and cultivated by the Joint Centre will be provided, including: - Theory and experiments on nitride-based thermoelectrics - Graphene petal arrays for composites, batteries, and solar energy - Thermal and electrical interfaces - Granular mechanics for enhancing predictive models of electrochemical storage - Boron/ nitrogen modification of graphene for thermal energy storage - Water purification and medical diagnostics The talk will close with thoughts on lessons learned and future prospects.


Timothy S. Fisher Tim Fisher joined Purdue’s School of Mechanical Engineering in 2002 after serving as a faculty member at Vanderbilt University beginning in 1998. He received the BS and PhD degrees from Cornell University and spent two years as a full-time engineer at Motorola. His work has been recognized through a number of awards, including the NSF CAREER award, the 3M Untenured Faculty Award, the Best Student Poster Award from the Semiconductor Research Corporation, and the Best Paper Award at the Fifth Intersociety Conference on Thermal Phenomena in Electronic Systems. His current research efforts include theoretical, computational and experimental studies focused toward integration of nanoscale materials with bulk materials for enhancement of electrical, thermal, and mass transport characteristics. Applications of his work cover a broad range of areas, including nanoelectronics, thermal and electrical interface materials, electronics cooling, direct energy conversion, biosensors, and hydrogen storage. This work has also produced related studies of controlled synthesis of nanomaterials, particularly carbon nanotubes.
