Amol Karandikar is a postdoctoral associate working with Tim Strobel and Reinhard Boehler. Amol is working on material synthesis and phase stability of carbon/hydrogen rich compounds and light element transport in metals. He is also working on the use of neutron scattering for light elements phase analysis. Additionally, Amol is interested in high-pressure/high-temperature study of materials and melting temperature measurements. Previously, Amol was a predoctoral associate at the Geophysical Laboratory from 2010-2014.
