PEOPLE: Three degrees in four years for Ridgefield man
Matthew Pelliccione came to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as a freshman in 2003. After only four years, he is leaving with two bachelor's degrees, a master's degree, and a set of prestigious fellowships to continue studying physics at Stanford University.
Mr. Pelliccione, who will participate in Rensselaer's 201st Commencement on May 19, was raised in Ridgefield, where he graduated from Ridgefield High School. He was interested in science from a very young age, but it wasn't until high school that he was first exposed to Einstein's playground — physics. It didn't take long for him to uncover his future career.
While at Rensselaer, he worked on research projects in the field of nanotechnology under the mentorship of Toh-Ming Lu, the R.P. Baker distinguished professor of physics. His research examines the physics of building nanostructures using novel nanofabrication techniques, including sputter deposition and chemical vapor deposition. His advances could allow researchers and companies to better control the growth of nanostructures, enabling them to build more efficient semiconductor devices and optical or magnetic coatings.
