Hello fellow Gaucho scholars! My name is Brett Yurash and I’m a fourth year PhD candidate in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry. My research concerns the study of fundamental optoelectronic processes in organic semiconductors with applications in photovoltaics and light-emitting diodes. Besides research, I’m a teaching assistant for the physical chemistry lecture series. Outside of the laboratory and classroom I spend my extra time working with SciTrek, a program which brings university volunteers to local elementary and junior high schools in an effort to enhance understanding of, and appreciation for, the scientific method through inquiry-based learning modules. I’m also the department representative for the Graduate Student Association. As a member of the SFAC committee I will continue to represent the needs of the collective graduate student body and ensure that student fees are allocated in a cost-effective, impactful manner.
