Please welcome to the group a new undergraduate student, Warren Crowell, who will be undertaking research in James Stevenson’s burgeoning sub-group. Warren just received College of Engineering funding from Intel via the ELI (Engineering Learning Initiatives). He will be starting in the summer and working on developing models for organic-inorganic hybrid materials, such as the PbS and PbSe quantum dot precursors and the PbI/Cl-based perovskites. Warren is a dual major in ChE and CS.
In additional news, two of James’s team, Jovana and James R., will be leaving us for the summer to take up internship positions. Jovana will be at Northwestern and James will be at a solid fuel cell start-up in California called Bloom Energy. Good luck to them both!
Jovana Andrejevic, an undergrad in the Clancy group, has won this year’s College of Engineering Alumni Association (CEAA) Undergraduate Research Award. The award will be presented to her at CEAA’s annual awards banquet on April 24th, 2015. Jovana has been doing an outstanding job on the lead chalcogenide modeling studies with her mentor, James Stevenson, and should get a first-author publication from her results.
Megan Hill, senior in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has won the NSF Graduate Fellowship. Megan is an undergrad experimental collaborator with the III/V materials group. This prestigious national award will support her graduate career for three years wherever she goes.
Congratulations to Taha Ezzyat for winning a three-year NSF Graduate Fellowship. Taha continues the recent success of the Clancy group in winning NSF Fellowships, most recently to Tori and Alexandra.
In addition, congratulations to Henry Herbol for receiving an Honorable Mention.
Both Taha and Henry will receive XSEDE allocation of cycles for their research.
Jonathan Saathoff Wins Best Poster Prize at the 14th New York Complex Matter Workshop on December 6, 2014.
On October 5th, Jovana was one of only two College of Engineering undergrad students who were awarded the Frank and Rosa Rhodes Scholarships for 2014-15. This award recognizes outstanding academic achievement and leadership.
