University Of Rochester
Dhara Trivedi was born and grew up in Ahmedabad, Gujarat in India. She received her Bachelor of Science and Masters of Science in Physics, from Gujarat University in India. Trivedi earned her PhD in Physics from University of Rochester in 2015. Under the guidance of Prof. Oleg V. Prezhdo, her doctoral research focused on the timedomain density functional theory to model non-adiabatic molecular dynamics in various nanoscale systems. In the period of 2015-2018, she worked as a postdoctoral research associate in George Schatz's group in the Department of Chemistry at Northwestern University. During this time, she worked on applications of plasmonics properties of nanoscale systems. In 2018 she joined the Physics Department at Clarkson University as a Visiting Assistant Professor. She began as an Assistant Professor at Clarkson University in 2019.
- Charge and energy transfer in various large scale systems (e.g.: metals, semi- conductors, Perovskites, 2D materials and their interfaces)
- Plasmon-based hybrid systems
- Characterization of materials
Our research efforts aim to understand, tailor, and manipulate the atomistic level description of a system with the development and implementation of quantum-classical dynamics. It explores the details of underlying processes that influence this system, providing a better insight into the cutting edge experimental research and have high potential to impact the society by enabling new technologies or by improving the existing ones.
