Adithya Kommini

Currently, I am working as a Data Scientist at SFL Scientific defining data strategies and developing state-of-art AI algorithms. I hava a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering supervised by Prof. Zlatan Aksamija at Umass, Amherst. Broadly my research was to build predictive models coupled with high performance cloud computing tools to simulate probabilistic systems. In particular, my focus was to understand the charge transport dynamics in semiconductors to evaluate their thermoelectric capabilities.
