Congratulations to Steve and Peter for passing their respective qualifying exams.
Congratulations to Peter on receiving a 2500$ WCEE Summer Research and Internship Grant to spend time with our collaborators in Switzerland this summer doing second harmonic generation on magnetic and multiferroic oxides. This funding is provided by the Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies (WCED).
Congratulations to Peter for receiving an Honorable mention for his NSF Graduate Research Proposal on High Entropy Oxides. Applicants receiving Honorable Mention are provided enhanced access to cyberinfrastructure resources, including supercomputing time, in support of research toward completion of the graduate program of study.
Betsy is a senior studying Materials Science Engineering and minoring in Multidisciplinary Design. She is a project lead on The Initiative, a team which designs heated bassinets for underweight infants in Ethiopia. Currently she assists with the characterization of entropy stabilized oxides and has previously worked on a capillary angiogenesis project in the CSET Laboratory at the University of Michigan.
When not logging impressive study marathons in the basement of the library, Betsy enjoys skiing, backpacking, and attempting to delicious food on a college budget.
