Siddharth Rajupet is a graduate student in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Case Western Reserve University, Ohio, where he also earned his B.S. degree. His research interests include studying fundamentals of triboelectric charging in granular systems, as well as forces governing particle dynamics. Currently, he studies the role of triboelectric charging on particle adhesion to rough surfaces.


Harvesting Energy from Falling Droplets

A clever coupling of triboelectric charging and the hydrophobic effect leads to a remarkably efficient electrical nanogenerator. Read More »
