Arjun Batra is a current Harvard undergraduate from Colorado. Since high school, he has been working on a computational chemistry research internship under the guidance of Dr. David Wu (Colorado School of Mines), using molecular dynamics (GROMACS) to simulate the catalysis of clathrate hydrate nucleation with applications towards greenhouse gas sequestration. In his freshman year in college, he has enjoyed being part of Harvard’s Life Science 50 course, diving into the interdisciplinary connections between physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, and computer science with a strong emphasis in research. Arjun joined the Aizenberg Lab in his freshman year and is conducting research on fabricating and analyzing the structure of multi-layer inverse opals under the guidance of Dr. Haichao Wu. His interests include bio-inspired design, sustainable materials, and novel fabrication techniques.
