Nanodiamond Review Article

Our review of nanodiamond is on the list of top 10 most read papers in Nature Nano, 5 years after publication.
This is a phenomenal performance showing continuing interest to the subject, but also the impact of that specific paper – 8 of 10. Most read are 2016 papers. Long lifetime shows a real impact of the paper.
Also, our very recent review of 2D materials for supercapacitors is among the hottest nanomaterials articles of Wiley: http://www.chemistryviews.org/view/0/HottestInorganic.html

365-24-7 Presentation Ceremony

The first 365-24-7 Presentation Competition was held in Spring 2016.  PhD Candidate, Kathleen Maleski, was selected as the best presenter for the 2016 competition.
The 365-24-7 Presentation Competition, designed by Dr. Babak Anasori, is a set of three presentations geared to prepare students for a variety of presentations, ranging from a conference presentation to an elevator pitch, or even shorter. Students present their research first in a 365 second (~ 6min) presentation, then present it in a 24s presentation (elevator speech) and prepare use a 7s presentation promoting the most important aspect of their research (first impression).  Following each presentation, students were judged by their peers on a 1-10 scale on the quality of their talk, clarity, and ability to communicate their research topic.
This year competition was held as a workshop in order to create polished presentations. Each presenter received a certificate of completion at the end and the winner received a $100 gift card.
