D’Souza scholarship supports CSE undergrads

The scholarship will provide need-based support to undergraduate students pursuing a degree in Computer Science and Engineering.| Short Read

Robin (BSE CS ’06) and Priancka D’Souza of New York, New York have recently established the Robin and Priancka D’Souza Family Scholarship to provide need-based support to undergraduate students pursuing a degree in Computer Science and Engineering.

Robin D’Souza has worked at Bloomberg for the past ten years and is currently a Team Lead in Engineering Department. He graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Science from University of Michigan’s College of Engineering in 2006 and received a MBA in Entrepreneurship, Strategy & Change Management from New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business in 2013.

Priancka D’Souza has worked at JPMorgan Chase for the past twelve years and is currently working in Risk Management. She graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Science & Engineering from University of Pennsylvania in 2004, and received a MBA in Finance from New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business in 2013.

The electrons absorb laser light and set up “momentum combs” (the hills) spanning the energy valleys within the material (the red line). When the electrons have an energy allowed by the quantum mechanical structure of the material—and also touch the edge of the valley—they emit light. This is why some teeth of the combs are bright and some are dark. By measuring the emitted light and precisely locating its source, the research mapped out the energy valleys in a 2D crystal of tungsten diselenide.

Mapping quantum structures with light to unlock their capabilities

Rather than installing new “2D” semiconductors in devices to see what they can do, this new method puts them through their paces with lasers and light detectors. | Medium Read
