Sam Peurifoy is currently a PhD student at Columbia University in the City of New York. His work involves the synthesis and material properties of novel atomically precise graphene nanoribbon structures, specifically for applications in optoelectronics such as solar cells. Prior to Columbia, he completed his B.S. in chemistry and mathematics at the University of Miami where he investigated supramolecular polymer architectures for optoelectronics. Significant national awards include NSF REU, RISE-DAAD, and NDSEG fellowships. Sam is a current Resolution Fellow and operates his venture USolar out of New York.
