Zachary Clemens is a graduate in Material Science and Engineering with a focus on nanomaterials and materials simulations for quantum computing applications. Previously, he has worked as an undergraduate researcher on density functional theory simulations of perovskite oxides and further at UC Santa Cruz studying the synthesis of nanomaterials in electrochemistry applications. As a participant in the 2020Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Data Science Challenge, he hopes to continue to apply data science and machine learning to complex materials problems in the future. In his free time, Zachary flies RC airplanes at local airfields and volunteers at the Castle Air Museum inside the restoration hangar. He is also an avid explorer and backpacker making frequent trips to Yosemite during the summer months. After graduation, he hopes to make an impact in cutting-edge materials research at companies such as Intel, Tesla and Google.
