News continues to spread regarding the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials highly innovative research on EMI shielding. View the additional news stories at the following links:
Yury Gogotsi, PhD, Distinguished University and Trustee Chair professor in the College of Engineering and head of the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute, was interviewed in a Dec. 2 WHYY-Radio (91-FM) story about his research to create a super-absorbent material that can help to clean up oil spills.
Listen to the interview here.
Congratulations to Prof. Gogotsi for being elected to the MRS Board of Directors. This position will allow him to help establish the direction of the societyas it strives to build “a dynamic, interactive, global community of materials researchers to advance technical excellence by providing a framework in which the materials disciplines can convene, collaborate, integrate and advocate.”
Prof. Gogotsi will give two invited talks in Turkey this week, including the Plenary Presentation for mESC-IS 2015 (Turkey) at METU, Ankara, and the Keynote lecture at 2nd International NanoBioTechnology Symposium in Köyceğiz, Muğla, Turkey.
The A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute hosted the 2013 Pennsylvania Regional Nanotechnology for Energy Conference on May 23. A joint effort with the Lehigh University Nanotech Network, the 2013 conference focused on the theme “Strategic Priorities for Energy and Sustainability.”
