Congratulations and best wishes to Cameron Brown, who has accepted a great position at Eastman in Kingsport, TN, beginning in just a week or two! Way to go, Cameron!
Congratulations to Meredith, John, and co-workers on the publication of their paper “Mechanochromic stretchable electronics” in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. A cool example of how molecular level engineering can bring useful new function to soft devices!
We’re delighted that the NSF is funding the Center for Molecularly Optimized Networks, which will give us the opportunity to work with our great colleagues at Duke (Michael Rubinstein), Northwestern (Julia Kalow), and MIT (Jeremiah Johnson & Brad Olsen). Can’t wait to see our collective big plans come to fruition over the next few years!
The entire lab is enjoying our great visiting students from incredibly varied backgrounds: Hent Schuurman, a Master’s student intern from Waginengen; Andy Saiz, an undergraduate from the University of San Diego; and, Ritvik Nalamothu, a high school student from Cary Academy.
The entire lab is proud of our graduating seniors, Rachel Rohde and John Deng. Both graduated with distinction this weekend and are off to great things out west, where they will start their post-Duke careers by hiking the PCT and working at Stanford, respectively, before heading off to continue their educations. We’ll miss you but look forward to hearing about all of the amazing things you do!
