PhD Candidate, Ariana Levitt, visited the Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) accompanied by Dr. Xu Xiao, met our collaborators, Prof. Jun Zhou and Prof. Ming Xu and delivered a seminar at HUST last week. She moved to Hong Kong to attend the fibers conference this week. Our group members promote our research and increase the visibility of Drexel University around the world!
Congratulations to our biomedical senior design team, who successfully presented their project today. Eliot, David and Fabian gave a tremendous presentation for their project entitled “MXene Filter for Hemodialysate Regeneration”.
Congratulations to former visiting researcher, Ke Li, who will be joining Prof. Valeria Nicolosi’s group at Trinity after graduation. Ke will get a chance to lead the MXene efforts at Trinity College.
Congratulations to our senior design team, who successfully presented their project today!
Many Drexel researchers attended the 2nd International Conference on MXenes
in Beijing, China. The conference attracted about 450
participants from 90
institutions in Asia, Europe, Middle East, Australia and US (mainland China is responsible for 66 of those). The community of MXene researchers is expanding quickly – research publications already originate from more than 700 institutions in 47 countries, according to Web of Science. Three Chinese companies form the conference sponsors offer MAX and MXene for sale.
The next conference will take place in Ningbo in May 2020. Stay tuned – the exact dates will be determined soon.
The A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute opened a sleek 7,400-square-foot laboratory this week with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, speeches, lab tours, and alumni and international guests in attendance. Designed by the architectural firm Dimitri J. Ververelli, Inc., the laboratory is the College of Engineering’s newest and largest.
The nanomaterials lab represents a $5M infrastructure investment to advance interdisciplinary fundamental and applied research for one of the most exciting developments in materials science of the past 50 years—the discovery at Drexel of the novel, two-dimensional layered wonder material called MXene.

The A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute is proud to announce that four undergraduate students from the Drexel COE and COAS arrived in South Korea on May 1, 2019 to start their 5 month co-op at the FIRST Nano2 Co-op Center, a research center between Drexel University and the National Nanofabrication Facility Center. This program brings together researchers from across top universities in Korea (KAIST, KIST, SKKU) and faculty at Drexel University. Each student has a specifically designed research project to complete abroad.
This year’s students include:
Benjamin Chacon – Biomedical Engineering
Deng Kuol – Physics
Luke Houseman – Engineering Technology
Kyla Gardiola – Chemical and Biological Engineering
Drexel University’s College of Engineering featured PhD student, Simge Uzen, and her exciting research on conductive yarns for smart textiles. Read the full story here.
Congratulations to PhD student Bilen Akuzum on winning the prestigious 2019 ECS Summer Fellowship!
