Bio

Asst. Prof. Kedar Hippalgaonkar is a joint appointee with the Materials Science and Engineering Department at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and as a Senior Scientist at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) at the Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR). He is a 2020 NRF Fellow and MOE Inauguration Grant Awardee and has received the Materials Horizons (2021) and JMCA (2019) Emerging Investigatorships. He is leading the multi-PI Accelerated Materials Development for Manufacturing (AMDM) program focusing on the development of new materials, processes and optimization using Machine Learning, AI and high-throughput computations and experiments in electronic, thermoelectric, polymeric and structural materials. He led the Pharos Program on Hybrid (inorganic-organic) thermoelectrics for ambient applications from 2016-2020.

Research Interests

Dr. Hippalgaonkar’s interests are in designing functional materials, especially for energy applications. He has fundamental knowledge in solid state physics, 1D (nanowires), 2D (TMDCs) as well as inorganic-organic (hybrid) materials. His approach to materials by design is built on creating and utilizing materials data by high-performance computing and high-throughput experiments to synthesize and characterize materials for optical and electronic properties.  In addition, he is using machine learning and data science for materials discovery. His background is in transport properties of materials specifically in understanding their thermal, optical and thermoelectric properties. He is keen on developing tools such as process optimization, design of experiments and materials and process fingerprinting from materials development to device applications.
