My name is Dr. Parthiban Santhanam and I am currently working on a startup
company, Exergy Dynamics, Inc., which is commercializing efficient LED
phonon recycling (patent pending, Current Assignee: Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
Previously I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in
the Edward L. Ginzton Laboratory
at Stanford University. While there
I conducted research in nanophotonics for energy applications in
Prof. Shanhui Fan's theoretical photonics group.
