Student Profile: Katherine Song
Working in Professor Sigurd Wagner’s lab with funding from Universal Display Corporation, Song worked on thin-film transistors that include a hybrid insulator to combine the performance of inorganic materials with the flexibility of organic materials. She also worked with Wagner and Assistant Professor Naveen Verma on large-area, amorphous silicon-based circuits for a structural health-monitoring system. Their system combines nanoscale integrated circuits, which offer computational efficiency and power, with large-area electronics, which provide scalability and mechanical flexibility.
Earned certificates in materials science and applications in computing.
Palo Alto Research Center, working on organic and silicon nanowire solar cells.
Co-president of the Princeton chapter of the Materials Research Society; vice president of Tau Beta Pi; co-president of the Princeton Science in Society journal; vice president and design team co-captain of the Princeton chapter of the International Association of Hydrogen Energy; fellow of the Writing Center; and a residential college peer tutor.
