Congratulations to DNI PhD student Sokhna Dieng for being awarded the Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future Award in support of Dieng’s studies and work at Drexel. The Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future Award’s long-term goal is to accelerate gender equality in STEM by generating conditions that result in more women pursuing scientific careers through alleviating some of the barriers they encounter when enrolling in STEM disciplines. Sokhna Dieng will be working on the development of 2D carbides and nitrides known as MXenes. She will explore synthesis and potential applications of this quickly expanding family of materials with outstanding electrochemical, optical, mechanical, and other properties.
