Harrison is a 2017 WVU graduate with B.A. degrees in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, as well as a 2019 recipient of an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering, Harrison has been a member of the FEST lab since 2015, where he has assisted in research projects such as sol-gel fabrication of functional coatings, formulating metallic based inks for use in additive manufacturing, and fabrication of methane sensors using graphene flakes. His research experiences includes multiple undergraduate fellowships through WVU’s NASA Space Grant Consortium as well as participating in the International Research Experience for Students (IRES) program, collaborating between WVU and the University of Crete in Greece. Current research interests and projects include the synthesis and morphological/electrical characterization of graphene from graphite flakes via high shear liquid exfoliation and incorporating these materials to enhance the performance of a variety of devices and the performance of material composites. Outside of research, Harrison is president of the Fencing Club at WVU, as well as an officer in the WVU Materials Advantage/Materials Research Society Student Organization.
