Current and past members of the Nanomaterials group attend the 1st International Conference on MXenes at Jilin University in Changchun, China.
We are organizing the 1st International Conference on MXenes at Jilin University (Changchun, China) this week. The conference program is attached. Prof. Barsoum will be giving an invited talk and three post-doctoral researchers our my group (Xu Xiao, Chris Shuck and Narendra Kurra) will be presenting their work as well.

Our Senior Design team of Thomas Heng and Devon Spinelli won the best presentation for the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. They will represent our Department in the College of Engineering Senior Design Competition.
Congratulations to the team and their mentors!
Congratulations to NMG alumna, Dr. Amanda Pentecost, who recently accepted a job with the consulting firm, Exponent. Amanda will be working as a Biomedical Engineering Consultant. Congratulations!
Congratulations to Ph.D. Candidate, Tyler Mathis, Dr. Babak Anasori and our former team member Dr. Mengqiang Zhao on publishing a nice paper in Nature. This work results from collaboration with Prof. Shu Yang’s group at UPenn.

Below are links to press releases from Penn and Drexel:
The A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials is proud to send the first cohort of 4 undergraduate researchers to South Korea for a 5-month research co-op. The students will be working with colleagues at NNFC-KAIST and KIST on individual research projects led by Drexel faculty. This collaboration is part of the NNFC-Drexel Nano2Co-op Center, funded by the NRF and supported by Drexel’s Steinbright Career Development Center (SCDC), Office of International Programs, College of Engineering, and the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute.
Colleagues at Clemson recently released a story about our collaborative research
. This work started about two years ago, with Dr. Vadym Mochalin, and was completed relatively recently. The original paper was published in the flagship materials science journal, Advanced Materials
