Calvin is a Senior R&D Scientist in the Physical, Chemical, and Nano Sciences Center at Sandia National Laboratories. He leads research efforts in optoelectronic and energy storage materials and devices. His research interests include charge separation, charge transfer, and charge transport phenomena at interfaces relevant to energy harvesting, energy storage, and energy conversion devices. Calvin received his Ph.D., M.A., and B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in 2008, 2004 and 2002, respectively. His dissertation investigated the fundamental physical, chemical, and electrical properties of molecular charge transfer dopants in organic materials and devices. This work earned him a Materials Research Society Graduate Student Award in 2008. Prior to joining Sandia, Calvin was a National Research Council (NRC) Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). His work on high throughput spray-deposited thin films was nominated for a World Technology Award in 2010.
