Spencer Thomas Wyant

Spencer Thomas Wyant is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT, working in the research lab of Asegun Henry, associate professor of mechanical engineering. Previously, he obtained his BS in chemical engineering at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. His current research focus is on the development of accurate interatomic potentials to model heat transport at solid-solid interfaces. In particular, he is developing different kinds of machine learning interatomic potentials to model interface systems like Ge-GaAs, Al-Al2O3, and AlN-GaN.
