BioProf. Rajagopal's primary research focus is on advancing the design, optimization and data-driven modelling of electric power systems. His work involves creating novel sensing and control platforms, robust data processing algorithms and dynamical statistical decision methods. He has also extensively worked on sensing infrastructure systems and transportation networks.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsAlgorithms, systems, and theory for the next generation of data processing and data analytics systems.
Assistant Professor of Materials Science and Engineering
BioWe are engaged in theory and modeling of materials at the atomic scale. Our recent work has two primary directions:
1. Monolayer and few layer materials (i.e. graphene, MoS2) for electronics, NEMS, and energy applications.
2. Materials at conditions of high temperature, electromagnetic fields, and pressures, including dynamic or shock compression.
Recent research topics include piezoelectricity and phase change effects in monolayer materials. Past topics include THz radiation generation, energetic materials, and photonic crystals. We develop and utilize computational tools (molecular dynamics statistical methods, electronic structure, materials informatics approaches, etc.) and interact closely with experimentalists.
Professor (Research) of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Emeritus
BioReinhard studies the fate of organic substances in the subsurface environment and develops technologies for the remediation of groundwater contaminated with chlorinated and non-chlorinated hydrocarbon compounds. His research is concerned with mechanistic aspects of chemical and biological transformation reactions in soils, natural waters, and treatment systems.

Assistant Professor of Bioengineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur lab focuses on developing ‘Interactive Bio-Technology’ (IBT), a field we pioneered to enable real time interactive experimentation and programming with multi-cell assemblies thereby lowering access barriers to life-science experiments for experts and the public. Our realtime Biology Cloud Experimentation Labs are a particularly suited route for wide dissemination. In parallel, we use biophysics and synthetic biology approaches to study and engineer dynamic Multi-Cell Patterns and Forms, with the broad goal of understanding their algorithmic basis. Our research program is built upon a uniquely interdisciplinary approach that bridges domains as diverse as cell motility, genetic engineering, modeling and analytics, microfluidics, embedded systems, cloud lab architectures, computer science, (biotic) game design, and education. Our long-term goal is that biotechnological equipment becomes as interactive, user friendly, and ubiquitously used as their electronic counterparts. (“A biotic computer on every desk.”)

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsModern applications demand power capabilities beyond what is presently achievable. High performance systems need high power density and bandwidth that are difficult to achieve.
Power density can be improved with better semiconductors and passive componets, and by reducing the energy storage requirements of the system. By dramatically increasing switching frequency it is possible to reduce size of power converters. I'm interested in high performance/frequency circuits switching >10 MHz.
