Yohan Seepersad, PhD
Yohan earned his PhD in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University in July 2015. Currently employed as a research assistant at the A.J. Drexel Plasma Institute, exploring the area of nanosecond pulsed plasma generation in liquids. Other research interests include applied plasma physics and diagnostics, optics, non-thermal plasma, photonics, control engineering and advanced system theory.
He served as a teaching assistant in the College of Engineering at Drexel University for four years, involved heavily with both graduate and undergraduate systems and controls classes. He has a strong interest in education work in STEM related fields. His programming experience includes Monte Carlo simulations of rarefied gas dynamics in a solar radiometer using PIC simulations in MATLAB and a wide-band spectrum analyzer for dynamic spectrum sensing developed using PYTHON. He also has prior experience working with single crystal silicon solar cells at IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center, characterizing quantum efficiency and device parameters.
