Professor Shenoy's current research focuses on computational modeling of the fabrication, performance and physical properties of nanoscale devices and structures for applications in logic, storage, optoelectronics, sensing and energy. Among the issues under study are mechanics and electronic properties of graphene and graphene oxide, growth mechanisms and mechanical properties of nanowires, strain-driven self-assembly of nanocrystals, morphological evolution and stability of surface-based nanostructures and strategies for preparing patterned surfaces that can serve as templates for growing nanoscale devices.
Vivek Shenoy received his Ph.D. from the Ohio State University in 1998, working with Will Saam and Jason Ho. From 1998 to 2000 he was a postdoctoral fellow at Brown University with Rob Phillips. In 2000 he became an Assistant Professor of Engineering at Brown University. He was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in 2005 and to the rank of Professor in 2010. He held the Richard and Edna Solomon Assistant Professorship from 2002-2005 and is a recipient of the Rosenbaum visiting Fellowship from the Isaac Newton Institute of Mathematical Sciences, University of Cambridge. In 2006 he spent his sabbatical leave at the California Institute of Technology and the IBM Watson Research Center.
