PhD candidate Purvam Gandhi is part of Edward Dreizin’s team at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). In this video produced by NJIT, Gandhi elaborates on his work in MSEE’s Research Area 2 – Focus Area 2: Tailoring Chemistry via Materials, as well as the importance of the work being done by MSEE researchers.

As Gandhi explains, his work consists of creating ball-milled composite powders and testing their combustive properties through laser ignition and thermal analysis. Gandhi and others in the MSEE URA design, create, and test these reactive powders to maximize their effectiveness at neutralizing chemical warfare agents.
