Rohit Bukka

Rohit Bukka

Graduate Student

 

B.S./M.S. Condensed Matter Physics, University of Hyderabad, India

 

Research Interests: Porosity & permeability of materials; Li-ion batteries; Solid-state-ionics; Electrochemistry

 

What do you like about OSU-Tulsa? I like that the MSE department is within the Helmerich Research Center which houses state-of-the-art characterization equipment with immediate access to students for research purposes.  As an international student from a heavily populated city, I find Tulsa relaxing for its awesome low cost-of-living city life while not being densely populated. Moreover, Tulsa offers a good network of cycling lanes and beautiful parks (especially the Gathering Place) for those who prefer a healthier lifestyle.

Stephen Polkowski

Stephen Polkowski

Graduate Student

 

B.S. Mechanical Engineering, Oklahoma State University

 

Research Interests: Magnetism (of any form!), electrochemistry, structure-property relationships, data modeling, and application of machine-learning techniques to materials science.

 

What do you like about OSU-Tulsa?  Graduate school is definitely a partnership between student and advisor. I love the level of personal investment from the faculty to help the student succeed with their research projects. Additionally, I love the amount of hands-on work the students get to perform.  The Tulsa metro area is big enough that there are substantial amounts of extracurricular activities, but it doesn’t have a “big-city” feel. You’re never more than a 15-minute drive from an adventure in the great outdoors.

Christine Watson

Graduate Student

 

B.S. Chemical Engineering, B.S. Physics, North Carolina State University

 

Research Interests: Low-cost ceramic membranes with controlled porosity for filtration of produced water; In-situ high temperature materials research.

 

What do you like about OSU-Tulsa?  The research projects are very practical and applicable to the local economy and industry.  You know that your research has real world impact.  The professors also foster a supportive environment that encourages creativity and innovation.  Coming from the East Coast, Tulsa has the tight-knit community of a small town, but the cultural opportunities and attractions of a big city.  The Oklahoma Aquararium and Oklahoma Renaissance Festival are my favorites!
