Sebastian was born in Cusco, Peru and is a Peruvian-American Underrepresented Minority Student at Stanford University. He is currently a fourth year Electrical Engineering Ph.D. Candidate in the Congreve Lab. His research primarily deals with solving operational stability issues within lead halide perovskite LEDs (PeLEDs) via transition metal doping as well as achieving efficient circularly polarized electroluminescence from spin-PeLEDs. He is supported by the Stanford Diversifying Academia, Recruiting Excellence (DARE) Fellowship, US Department of Energy IBUILD Graduate Research Fellowship, P. Michael Farmwald Stanford Graduate Fellowship, and GEM Ph.D. Engineering Fellowship. In his free time, he studies violin performance within Stanford’s Department of Music and plays with his adorable dog, Ollie.
