Last year, Nanomaterials Group PhD candidate Kristy Jost was named a Graduate Student Award winner for the 2013 Lindau Meeting, giving her the opportunity to attend the annual Lindau Meeting of Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany in June. The 2013 meeting was focused on Chemistry and Chemistry-related fields. Jost works on developing “smart” and electronic textiles by combining high-tech fashion design techniques with advanced materials and nanotechnology, focusing primarily on integrated textile energy storage.
Jost attended the meeting and met with a number of Laureates (see photo below of her with 2011 Nobel Prize in Chemistry Laureate Dan Shechtman).
