PhD candidate
North Carolina State University

Eshwar Ravishankar is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at North Carolina State University in the Brendan O’Connor research group. Currently, Eshwar’s research focuses on achieving sustainable, low carbon-footprint food production through the integration of semi-transparent organic solar cells to greenhouses. This includes computationally demonstrating the potential for organic solar cells to achieve net-zero energy greenhouses while also conducting crop growth studies demonstrating the impact on popular greenhouse crops like lettuce to growth under semi-transparent organic solar cells.
