Dr. Vinnakota is an Assistant professor and an EET program coordinator.  His research largely emphasized on designing and study of light coupling with nanoscale, semiconductors with direct application in novel, high speed processors and sensors. After completing his postdoctoral work from Computational Electromagnetism Research Lab (CERL) and Institute of Micro Manufacturing (IFM), at Louisiana Tech University he joined the department of Chemistry and Physics at Troy University in the Spring of 2020. Research interests include: Novel Optoelectronic Devices, Metal and Semiconductor based Plasmonics and enhanced light matter interactions, Nanophotonics, Heat Transfer.

Dr. Shahriar received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The University of Texas at El Paso in December 2019. During his doctoral studies, he studied organic-inorganic halide perovskite solar cells. He worked with Dr. Deidra Hodges, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, to fabricate and characterize perovskite thin films and perovskite solar cells with a planar structure. Before joining the Department of Chemistry and Physics at TROY University in Fall 2023, he was a Post-Doctoral Scholar working with Dr. Stephen Kuebler, Professor of Chemistry and Optics, on bioinspired spatially-varying photonic crystals (SVPCs). SVPCs are fabricated by multi-photon lithography (MPL) to support the development of chemical warfare agent (CWA) sensors based on artificial substrates inspired by nanophotonic structures found in nature. His current research interests include flexible solar cells, energy-harvesting materials and technologies, nano-mechanical energy harvesting, and photonic sensors.
