Hendrick Lopez-Beltran is an undergraduate pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. He has a wide range of research experience from the biomedical sciences to renewable energy sources and energy storage. His specific work on the development of a conductive polymer-based composite for application in electronics via the novel method of synthesis vapor phase polymerization (VPP) involved collaboration with Nobel laureate M. Stanly Whittingham, co-inventor of the lithium ion battery, and generated his first co-author publication. His most recent research experience at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) involved research on space-based solar power as an alternative energy source alongside leading world experts in space solar power technology. These experiences have inspired him to pursue a Ph.D. in Material Engineering upon completion of his undergraduate career.
