Siyao is featured in the latest issue of Materials Today, highlighting the applications of her work in protective clothing! Check out the write up here. The referenced work is published in her paper here. Great work, Siyao! This is a very cool project!
Siyao was the first place winner for microscopy in the student/postdoc category of the 2020 Envisioning Research contest at NC State University for her image, “Glowing Neurons.” It will be featured in a digital exhibit at Hunt Library. You can see her winning image as well as the other winning images in this flickr gallery. […]
Justin (Jung-Sik) completed an internship at Lam research this summer! Located in Tualatin, Oregon, Lam is a semiconductor company, mainly producing the processing equipment used in etching and deposition of thin films for the fabrication of integrated circuits. Justin worked in the deposition product group where they develop the advanced deposition technique. Due to COVID […]
Rachel completed an internship at Micron Technology this summer as a Technology Development Engineer Intern. Instead of a traditional on-site internship at Micron’s headquarters in Boise, ID, she completed the internship virtually due to COVID restrictions. The virtual aspect meant that creative experiments and frequent collaborations were crucial. The project focused on utilizing molecular layer […]
Sarah was featured in the Student User Spotlight at NCSU’s Analytical Instrumentation Facility (AIF) this month. She frequently uses XRD and SEM from this facility in her research. The AIF website features a nice article about Sarah and her research on immobilization of metal organic frameworks (MOFs) onto bare fibers for chemical adsorption and degradation. […]
Sarah was selected (from over 4000 applications!) to receive the 2020 National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship Award! This fellowship is sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the Army Research Office (ARO), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR) under the Office of the Under Secretary for Research and […]
Leah received a Best Student Presentation Award for her talk at the 2019 Fall MRS conference! Her presentation shared the results of shock simulations on buried metal-metal interfaces. Way to go, Leah!
Wenyi’s work is featured in this month’s Beneath the AVS Surface newsletter! This work is published in her paper “Thermal atomic layer etching of metallic tungsten via oxidation and etch reaction mechanism using O2 or O3 for oxidation and WCl6 as the chlorinating etchant.” Great work and great paper, Wenyi!
Heather Barton successfully defended her PhD on metal-organic framework-fiber composites for the degradation of chemical warfare agents and simulants! She will be working as a development engineer for Micross. Congratulations Heather, and best of luck in the future!
Rachel Nye was selected to receive the Praxair Exceptional Teaching Assistant Award for the Fall 2019 semester! She TA’d with Dr. Parsons for CHE 717: Chemical Reactor Design last semester for the first year graduate students. The Praxair Award, sponsored by Praxair, Inc., is given out every semester to a student who demonstrates instructional effectiveness […]
