Congratulations to Alessandro Rupp for being named Nanotech Energy’s December 2020 employee of the month. He earned this distinction for an incredible work ethic coupled with an infectious upbeat and positive attitude.
Alessandro is a Research and Development Assistant in the Chico facility, who runs analytical experiments on our nanomaterials including, but not limited to, Silver nanowire, graphene, and graphene-based materials. The data includes the characterization of materials and interpretation of results, which is critical for the scientific and production teams to move forward in developing Nanotech’s superior products.
“I enjoy working with the diverse materials as well as the challenging problems we get to solve. For me, it doesn’t even feel like work. When I see people on their phones or on their laptops, I know that my work will make their lives easier,” Alessandro noted.“I appreciate the collegial work environment that Nanotech provides; such a teamwork mentality. I’m also very grateful for the production and warehouse workers – they are the backbone of the company!”
Alessandro graduated from Chico State University with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and Biochemistry, along with a Certificate of Nanoscale Analysis. In his spare time, Alessandro enjoys hiking in Bidwell Park, playing saxophone and piano! He’s always up for some great Mexican food, especially barbacoa and tacos.
As for 2021, Alessandro says he’s most looking forward to “shopping without masks (hopefully), and the launch of Nanotech’s non-flammable LCO batteries!”
