Grad student – William Kopcha

Will portrait

Will obtained his BS and MS from the University of Connecticut in 2008 and 2012, respectively.  After trying his hand at teaching high school and doing process engineering R&D in the beverage industry, he entered the Zhang group at Rutgers in 2017.  His research interests center around structure-property relationships, both on the molecular and supramolecular level, of organic and organometallic materials, including EMFs, with the potential for application in energy and electronics.  When not in the lab, he dabbles in guitar, cooking meat, Slavic linguistics, and drinking excessive amounts of coffee.
