Group members earn scholarships

Congratulations to 1st year graduate student Rachelle Austin for earning both the Gary E. Maciel Fund and C. Michael Elliott Scholarship!

Congratulations to 4th year graduate student Colby Evans for earning the Rodney Skogerboe scholarship!


Way to go everyone!

Congrats to Colby, Li, and Zach

Congrats to 4th year PhD students Colby and Zach on their papers being accepted to ChemElectroChem and ACS Energy Letters. Colby’s work focuses on electrochemical energy storage and Zach gave his perspective on single molecule imaging techniques in the field of photoelectrochemistry. Postdoc Li Wang’s work focuses on the optical and photoelectrochemical properties of monolayer MoS2 in interdigitated array electrodes (ACS Appl Mater Interfaces).

Microscopy activity published in J Chem Ed

Undergraduate students Travis (now MS student!), Amy, and Benton developed a cool microscopy activity (now online here). Students build a TIRF microscope and use it to image single nanoparticles. The activity helps students observe the optical diffraction limit, which was the subject of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
