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 […]
Jung-Sik Kim was featured in the Student User Spotlight at NCSU’s Analytical Instrumentation Facility (AIF) this January. He frequently uses the Verios SEM, TEM, FIB, XRR, and XPS to characterize thin film nucleation in his ALD/MLD research. The AIF website features a nice article about Jung-Sik and his work on MLD of polyurea. Read the […]
We are very excited to have Hwan Oh, a first year PhD student, join the Parsons Group! Hwan is from Seoul, South Korea, and studied chemical engineering an the University of Seoul before coming to NC State to pursue his PhD. He will be working with Sarah and Heather on MOFs.
The Parsons Group celebrated one last lunch with Zijian last week on a beautiful Fall day. Check out those colors! Zijian finished his work on MOFs here as a visiting PhD student, and will be returning to his home university in China to finish his doctorate program there. We really enjoyed having you as part […]
SK has been selected to present his research at the International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) in San Francisco this year! This organization focuses on research in the fields of semiconductor materials, devices, processing, metrology, and modeling in conjunction with the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC). SK will be presenting in a special poster session that highlights […]
