Kunjesh Agashiwala was born in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. He received a dual degree, M.Sc. (Hons.) in Physics and B.E. (Hons.) in Electrical & Electronics Engineering, from Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani, India, in July 2017. As part of his undergraduate thesis, he conducted research on transition metal di-chalcogenides (TMDCs) based devices at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai, India. He was the recipient of the Outstanding Academic Excellence Award from the Department of Physics, BITS Pilani, in April 2016. During the summer of 2016, as a part of the VITERBI-India Fellowship program, he was an undergraduate research intern at the University of Southern California (USC) where he worked on mobility enhancement in perovskite oxide thin films. In Fall 2017, he joined Prof. Banerjee’s Nanoelectronics Research Lab in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at University of California, Santa Barbara, to pursue his MS+ PhD degree. His current research is based on the design and exploration of 2-dimensional materials based interconnects and passive devices for next generation of radio-frequency electronics.
