About

Chris Perez is a PhD candidate in the Mechanical Engineering Department with a minor in Electrical Engineering. He holds an MS degree in ME from Stanford University and a BS in ME from UCLA. His research focuses on thermal energy transport in novel materials and nanostructures. Advised by Professor Goodson, he uses an interdisciplinary approach at the intersection of material science, optics, and electron microscopy to understand and tune thermal properties. Chris was a carpenter while studying in community college, motivating his current involvement in graduate recruitment and K-12 outreach efforts with the Stanford Optical Society.
