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.
