Nikolai Mukhin

Ph.D. Student

I was born and raised in the city of Charleston, South Carolina. While growing up, I have always had a passion for music, science, and engineering. I decided to pursue this passion and received my B.Sc. in chemical engineering in 2021 at the University of South Carolina. During my time at Carolina, I had the pleasure to be a teaching assistant for two semesters for the undergraduate thermodynamics class. I also had the opportunity to conduct research on hydrochloric acid electrolysis, organic electrosynthesis, and fuel cell additive testing under Dr. Sirivatch Shimpalee and Dr. Benjamin Meekins. After graduating, I continued conducting research in their lab as a research assistant until I made my transition into graduate school in the Fall of 2022. I joined NC State University to continue learning, problem solve, and become a leader in the field of chemical engineering.


In the Abolhasani Lab, I am focusing on the development of a material-efficient self-driving lab using fluidic micro-processors to accelerate the discovery of next-generation photonic materials for printed energy technologies.
