Congratulations to postdoctoral researcher, Dr. Xuehang Wang, who has been awarded the ‘Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Students Self-financed Abroad,’ an award set up by the China Scholarship Council to honor overseas Chinese students with outstanding academic accomplishments. Established in 2003, this award is developed to encourage research excellence and to recognize the achievements among Chinese students abroad. This award includes a 6,000-USD prize and a CSC-issued certificate.
Congratulations to Xuehang!
Congratulations to graduating Ph.D. students, Katie Van Aken and Evelyn (Chang) Ren, for receiving top awards from Drexel University, the Graduate College, and the College of Engineering.
Katie will be awarded the College of Engineering Award for Outstanding Promise and Evelyn was selected as the College of Engineering Award for Research Excellence. Both students will be recognized at the Graduate Student Day celebration on May 31, 2017 at 4 p.m. in Mitchell Auditorium.
Congratulations to Katie and Evelyn!
Many of our students and researchers presented at this year’s Drexel University International Research Showcase. Group members presented on our collaborative research conducted around the world, spanning South Korea, Saudi Arabia, France, China, South Africa, and the United Kingdom, to name a few.
See some photos from the showcase below:
Yury Gogotsi, PhD, whose materials science research as founder and director of the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute has opened up new possibilities for the applications of nanomaterials, was installed May 1 as the inaugural Charles T. and Ruth M. Bach Professor at Drexel University. The professorship was established with a permanent endowment of $2.2 million that will be used to fund Gogotsi’s current and future research initiatives – Read the full story here.
Congratulations to Prof. Yury Gogotsi!
Congratulations to Prof. Yury Gogotsi, who’s H-index has has surpassed 100 on Google Scholar
Congratulations to Dr. Babak Anasori on having his Grassroots Grant Proposal to the Materials Research Society Foundation selected for funding.
Congratulations to PhD Candidate, Mohamed Alhabeb, on the prestigious Joseph Carleone Endowed Awardfor the 16-17 Academic Year. Mohamed has done groundbreaking work on synthesis of MXenes, becoming the world-leading expert in that field.
Congratulations to Babak Anasori and his co-authors on having their papers listed as both “Hot Paper” and “Highly Cited Paper” on ISI. This paper is on discovery and properties of 2D ordered double-transition metal carbides, which was published in ACSNano and was selected both as the cover and Editors’ Choice article by ACS.
