The GAANN Program titled, “GAANN: Molecular Engineering for Sustainably and Health (MESH)”, was selected for funding by the Department of Education. This program provides funding for at least 5 PhD students for a duration of 3 years. Prof. Davis will serve as the Director and Drs. Getman and Birtwistle will serve as co-Directors of the program. We are looking forward to the continued success of the GAANN program in our department here at Clemson University!
Congratulations to PhD student Keturah Bethel who was 1 of 12 researchers selected to present their work at this year’s “Soft Matter for All” Virtual Conference hosted by University of Delaware, Princeton University, and the University of Chicago. Great job Keturah!
Prof. Davis was recently award a grant from the SC EPSCoR Scientific Advocate Network (SAN) Program for his proposal titled, “Closing the Gap of Underrepresented Minorities and Women in Polymer-Related Research”. Funding from this award will go to support undergraduate research on stimuli-responsive soft composites.
Congratulations to former PhD student Dr. Allison Domhoff for her most recent publication in Macromolecules titled, “Enhanced Proton Selectivity in Ionomer Nanocomposites Containing Hydrophobically Functionalized Silica Nanoparticles“.
Congratulations to PhD student Nick Gregorich for his recent publication in Journal of Materials Chemistry A titled, “Novel Composite Hydrogels Containing Fractionated, Purified Lignins for Aqueous-Based Separations“. This was Nicks’s first publication – congrats Nick!

A warm welcome to Missoury Lytle, who recently joined the Davis Group as a new PhD student!
With Prof. Mark Blenner leaving for the University of Delaware in Spring 2021, Prof. Davis has taken over as Director of the CBE Clemson GAANN Program on molecular engineering in sustainability and health.
On April 1st, graduate student Apoorv Balwani successfully defended his PhD thesis. Apoorv was one of the first two PhD students to join the lab in Fall 2015. Congratulations Dr. Balwani!
On April 1st, graduate student Allison Domhoff successfully defended her PhD thesis. Allison was one of the first two PhD students to join the lab in Fall 2015. Congratulations Dr. Domhoff!
