Students in the Spotlight
Studying Hydrogels for Air Conditioning
Working with MSE professor Pierre Lucas and Aletheia Ida, assistant professor in the UA School of Architecture, Derek Runge is researching hydrogels with self-cooling and water recuperating properties for potential use in air conditioning and evaporative cooling systems.Hydrogel technology could possibly reduce the amount of energy and water consumed.
Predicting Failure from the Tiniest of Grains
Postdoctoral researcher Haokun Deng, an MSE lab manager who earned his PhD in 2016, worked with UA College of Engineering associate professor Katerina Aifantis on a nanotechnology-based collaborative project to predict how metallic solids break down at the atomic level.I am studying nanotechnology applications in medicine and energy.
Appearing on the Cover of Journal
Research by Stephen Budy, a PhD student in chemistry at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, was featured on the cover of Acta Crystallographica Section C: Crystal Structure Communications while he was a master’s student at the UA.I’m looking forward to doing research and expanding my knowledge and experience.
Advancing Organic Semiconductors
PhD candidate Bharati Neelamraju is researching organic semiconductors and flexible electronic devices. She was named a UA 2018 Carson Scholar and is an Agnese Nelms Haury Fellow, a title granted to researchers working on projects promoting environmental conservation and social justice.These are not commercially viable right now, but they will be. That part excites me – we are working on things that will happen and have not exactly been done before.
