Philip Campbell headshot Philip Campbell

Philip Campbell received his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at Dallas in August 2012. In August 2013, he received his Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering based on his thesis “A Path toward Single Electron Devices: Chemical Functionalization of Si(111) to achieve Single Electron Transport through Double Tunnel Junction,” which was supervised by Dr. Yves Chabal in the Materials Science and Engineering department at the University of Texas at Dallas. Philip is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and is advised by Dr. Eric Vogel in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Dr. Jud Ready in the Georgia Tech Research Institute, with an expected graduation in 2017. His work is focused on investigating the device prospects for large-area films of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), specifically investigating large-area, highly uniform films of MoS2 and WSe2. He has also worked on a theoretical model for understanding the behavior of TMDs in the symmetric field effect transistor, demonstrating the potential for high performance devices, and is focused on developing an understanding of the relationship between material quality and the performance of resonant tunneling devices.



Tyler Colling

Tyler is pursuing a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at Georgia Tech with an expected graduation in 2020. He graduated from the University of North Dakota in 2015 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a focus on materials engineering.  Tyler’s interests are in electronic materials and multifunctional composites. Currently, he is designing novel supercapacitors and is advised by Dr. Jud Ready at Georgia Tech Research Institute. He is especially focused on electrolyte interactions with the electrodes which consist of novel embedded and functionalized carbon nanotube forests.

Throughout his undergraduate career, Tyler participated in four internships at Oak Ridge National Laboratory where he focused on various aspects of nuclear and plasma materials as well as isotope separation. He also participated on a senior design team developing a novel dielectric material for supercapacitors.
