Dr. Veronika Stelmakh is the co-founder and CEO of Mesodyne. The focus of her PhD at MIT’s Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies was the development of a practical photonic crystal selective emitter to enable high efficiency heat to electricity conversion – sponsored by the US DOE and DOD – which resulted in a world-record benchtop demonstration with Mesodyne’s co-founder Dr. Walker Chan. Veronika holds a BS in Electrical Engineering from UT Arlington, as well as a MS and PhD in Electrical Engineering from MIT. Prior to her graduate studies, Veronika worked as an application engineer at a semiconductor manufacturing company – International Rectifier, now Infineon.
