My name is Ashish Verma Penumatcha and I am a graduate student pursuing my Ph.D. in the nano Appenzeller lab at Purdue University. I work primarily on building spin-based logic devices and electrical manipulation of magnetization through Spin Transfer Torque and the Giant spin-Hall effect. Apart from spin-logic, I have studied contact properties of 2D-materials, Molybdenum disulphide and black phosphorus. During my internship at IBM, I also had the opportunity investigate the source of device-level variability in Carbon Nanotube FETs. During my Masters, I worked on understanding the SiO2-SiC MOS interface of Power MOSFETs through electrical characterization.

Other Research interests : Spin-Orbit torque in 2D-materials, flexible electronics.
