Michael Bowen is a sophomore pursuing a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a B.B.A. Economics with minors in Accounting and Spanish. He grew up in Garner, North Carolina where he discovered and developed his interests in clean, renewable energy. He spent the summer of 2017 at the University of Salamanca in Spain studying the application of the three-body problem to the validation and discovery of exotic quarks, and wants to one day start his own engineering firm focused on the design, consolidation, and implementation of large-scale renewable energy systems. A member of Abolhasani Labs since Fall 2017, he now works as a research assistant in the development of an automated microfluidic platform for a fast and material-efficient screening and optimization of colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals using spectroscopy techniques.
