My name is Dr. Parthiban Santhanam and I am currently working on a startup company, Exergy Dynamics, Inc., which is commercializing efficient LED technologies including phonon recycling (patent pending, Current Assignee: Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

Previously I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Edward L. Ginzton Laboratory at Stanford University. While there I conducted research in nanophotonics for energy applications in Prof. Shanhui Fan's theoretical photonics group.
