Galo's MS thesis is Small's frontispiece!

​Galo Torres Sevilla’s MS thesis (Fall 2012) has been published as Frontispiece of prestigious journal Small (Wiley-VCH). The paper titled, “Flexible and Semi-Transparent Thermoelectric Energy Harvesters from Low Cost Bulk Silicon (100) (Small 23/2013) (page 3915) by Galo Andres Torres Sevilla, Salman Bin Inayat, Jhonathan Prieto Rojas, Aftab Mustansir Hussain and Muhammad Mustafa Hussain” [Article first published online: 3 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/smll.201370146] describes a regenerative process to fabricate flexible silicon based thermoelectric generator. According to the esteemed reviewer(s), “Novel and impressive as the performance is increased due to flexibility and decreased cross section area and the technique is highly cost-effective”.
Galo Torres Sevilla joined KAUST as a MS student in Fall of 2011 from Ecuador. He is presently continuing towards his PhD as a PhD Candidate in the globally recognized rising Electrical Engineering program of KAUST. Galo has published 6 journal and 10 conference papers (5 as first author) including Nature Scientific Reports, Transducers 2014, IEEE NDMC 2014, MRS Fall Meeting 2014.
