About me

My name is Ashish Verma Penumatcha and I am a graduate student pursuing my PhD 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. I have worked on improving the quality of contacts made to Molybdenum disulphide, a Transition metal dichalcogenide that has received a lot of research interest in the nano-electronics community. During my Masters, I worked on understanding the SiO2-SiC MOS interface of Power MOSFETs through electrical characterization.
