PhD Student in EECS
MIT Energy Fellow
Ella Wassweiler joined ONE Lab in July 2016 as a PhD candidate in Electrical Engineering at MIT. While earning a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Iowa, Ella worked on designing high performance III-V optoelectronics with Prof. Fatima Toor. As a National Academy of Engineering Grand Challenge Scholar she developed a hardware based random number generator for internet security applications. In addition, through two NSF-REU programs, Ella implemented new methods of transferring graphene and created a circuit to stimulate and read brain impulses in real time.
