Our Fellows are trailblazers and pioneers, harnessing the potential of interdisciplinary science to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges. We believe when interdisciplinary science can flourish without limit, scientists make bigger discoveries more quickly to benefit the world and drive innovation that improves quality of life for everyone.
Our latest series of ‘We Are Schmidt Science Fellows’ films follows three Fellows, exploring their science, motivations, and how they aim to make a difference in the world. At the center of each is their interdisciplinary science and their journey to cross disciplinary boundaries.
Dr. Suhas Mahesh is a 2021 Fellow at the University of Toronto who has pivoted his science to focus on accelerated materials discovery for clean-energy technologies. Suhas hopes to find ways to develop next-generation materials for solving grand challenges like energy storage, clean electricity, and decarbonization.
Suhas wants to explore what we can do to accelerate the discovery of materials for clean energy. Here he explains more about his research goals:
