Jacob Hempel

I am currently a 3rd year graduate student at the University of Kentucky doing research for Doug Strachan. My research is on fabricating and characterizing nanoelectronic devices made from two-dimensional materials, such as graphene, molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) and so on. I love to read books and to write poetry. I also enjoy meeting new people and making new friends. 

My long term goal is to continue pursuing research in strongly correlated states of matter in two-dimensional heterostructures, preferably in academia.
