Engineering futuristic fabrics for personal thermal comfort

Published! is a series of chats with women in science highlighting their publications as leading authors. If you know someone who has recently published a scientific manuscript who would like to chat with me, you can get in touch via Twitter @laurenpoppi or email <>. Kony Chatterjee is a PhD Candidate from North Carolina State University and Wilson College of Textiles. Kony recently published a paper as first author, titled “In-plane thermoelectric properties of flexible and room temperature doped carbon nanotube films”, in the journal ACS Applied Energy Materials . You can read the article here . We chatted about the nitty gritty of testing new materials, why we should blow the dust off that old Chemistry textbook, and how familial support could be a key factor in the success of many women scientists moving forward. How did this research paper come about? What was the motivation behind characterizing these carbon nanotube films, and can you explain t
