Ieva Narkeviciute received her B.S. (2012) in Chemical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts Amherst where she worked in the laboratory of Prof. George Huber on biomass conversion to biofuels. She received her M.S. (2015) in Chemical Engineering from Stanford University and is currently a 5th-year Ph.D. student in the laboratory of Prof. Thomas Jaramillo. Her thesis work focuses on developing tantalum nitride semiconductors as photoanodes for photoelectrochemical water splitting—the process of using solar energy to directly split water into hydrogen and oxygen.
