Welcome to the Hybrid Nanomaterials Laboratory at NYU! Led by Professor Ayaskanta Sahu, our research investigates the transport phenomena in new and novel classes of nanostructured hybrid materials that have promise for optoelectronic and thermoelectric energy conversion. Our group has expertise in colloidal synthesis, advanced characterization, and device implementation of such materials.


We are interested in studying transport phenomena (mass, heat and charge transfer) at the nanoscale with a target of developing devices and schemes that can efficiently convert and store energy. Our research relies heavily on developing novel nanostructured hybrid materials (both model systems for fundamental studies and application oriented engineered systems) as well as integrating them into functional devices.



Our team comprises of high school, undergraduate, and graduate students with backgrounds in chemical engineering, chemistry, and materials science.


Teaching & Outreach

Applied Research Innovations in Science and Engineering program at New York University Tandon School of Engineering is a seven-week summer research program  for academically strong, 10th and 11th grade New York City residents with a demonstrated interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).


The Girls’ Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Summer Program is an intensive six-week summer program for high school girls who have a high aptitude in STEM subjects. Students participate in research, lectures, and workshops.



The Undergraduate Summer Research Program at the Tandon School of Engineering is open to NYU Tandon, NYU CAS/Tandon 3+2, and NYU Abu Dhabi rising sophomore, junior, and senior undergraduate students.  Students complete 10 weeks of hands-on research while also participating in seminars presented by distinguished administrative and academic personnel.


The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good, and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.

Welcome Lizhu!

Welcome Lizhu Guan, a visiting scholar from Harbin Institute of Technology.

Congratulations Peter and Louise!

Congrats Peter and Louise, who recently traveled to the 2018 AIChE Student Conference in Pittsburgh, PA. Peter presented a poster entitled, "Thin Film Ligand Exchange of Ag2Se Quantum Dots." Louise presented a talk entitled, "Fabrication of Transition Metal Chalcogenide Cu2Se Semiconducting Thin Films and Thermoelectric Property Characterization." Her travel was…
