Skanda did his PhD at Emory University with Eric Weeks in soft matter physics. There he used colloids as model systems to probe dimensionality aspects in liquids and glasses. Currently he is interested in using the tools of soft matter to understand living systems. Outside of physics, he is a classically trained south Indian (Carnatic) singer, plays guitar and enjoys the outdoors.
Shane Jacobeen – PHD Student, Physics, 2014-present
Shane started at GT after earning his B.S. in physics from Lebanon Valley College. Originally drawn to physics by a fascination with understanding how things work, he is currently interested in pursuing a career in industry. Outside of physics, his interests include working out, being outdoors, and exploring the south.
Ben is primarily interested in exploring the intersection of theory and experiment, and how we may use novel computational and manufacturing techniques to bring them closer together. Outside of research, he is a competitive powerlifter with the Georgia Tech Barbell Club and “enjoys” driving himself insane by correcting the many scientific misunderstandings he finds on the internet.
Jonathan is investigating the relationship between structure and mechanics in experiments. He hails from St. Louis and is thus a Cardinals fan. He is also an excellent (and very knowledgeable) baker.
David Yanni, PhD student, Physics, 2015-present
Nathan is a 4th year undergrad studying Physics with a concentration in Astrophysics and an interest in Physics Education. He grew up in Atlanta and enjoys Theatre, composing music, and designing video games.
Colin is an undergraduate at Georgia Tech. He pursues physics as a means to explain and understand interesting phenomena. When not working, he enjoys hockey, climbing, video games and playing music.
Laura is a second year undergraduate who is primarily interested in the interaction between biofilm spatial structure and antibiotics. She wants to learn more about interdisciplinary approaches to pathogen-related problems.
