The Kamat Group


Dr. Kevin Stamplecoskie

Kevin Stamplecoskie obtained a B.Sc. in Chemistry at the University of Waterloo, Canada and a Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of Ottawa. He is currently a Postdoc in the Radiation laboratory at the University of Notre Dame. His research has included; esterification of fats and oils as renewable fuels, doped semiconductors for spintronics, and photochemistry for synthesis/applications of noble metal colloids in optoelectronics, polymer chemistry, lithography and catalysis.

Dr. Rabeka Alam

Rabeka Alam received her BS in Chemistry in 2009 from Fordham University and her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Syracuse University in 2013. She is currently a Postdoctoral researcher in the Radiation Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame. Her expertise is in materials chemistry, and she has experience in synthesis, functionalization, and characterization of nanomaterials, energy transfer studies, and the development of nanomaterial based chemical sensors.

Dr. Chris Tuinenga

Chris Tuinenga earned a B. A. in Chemistry from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois in 2004 and a PhD in Chemistry from Kansas State University in 2011. He joined the Kamat Group in early 2014 after an ORISE Post-doc at the US Army Research Labs in Aberdeen, Maryland. His area of expertise is in doping semiconducting nanocrystals to control their optical and electronic properties and implementing these into electronic devices.
