NMG Alum Promoted to Full Professor

Congratulations to Dr. Volker Presser, former post-doctoral associate in the Nanomaterials Group, who was appointed as Full Professor and Head of Energy Materials at the Saarland University in Germany. He is also affiliated with INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials. It’s particularly impressive taking into account that Volker went from Assistant Professor to Full Professor in about two years, skipping the intermediate Associate Professor step. Congratulations once again to Volker!
