Recently, Prof. Davis (PI) and Prof. Thies (co-PI) received funding from the NSF CBET program for their proposal titled, “Uncovering Fundamental Transport Principles in Novel, Ultraclean Lignin-Based Hydrogels for Bioseparations.”
Undergraduates Ross Jasper and Anthony Ball recently had their work published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. The manuscript titled, Additive Manufacturing of Mechanically Isotropic Thin Films and Membranes via Microextrusion 3D Printing of Polymer Solutions, was a collaborative effort with researchers at Virginia Tech. Congrats Ross and Anthony!
Congratulations to graduate student Apoorv Balwani. His manuscript titled, Impact of Nanoparticles on the Segmental and Swelling Dynamics of Ionomer Nanocomposite Membranes, was recently published in Macromolecules. Great job Apoorv!
Prof. Davis recently received the NSF CAREER Award for his proposal titled, “Elucidating Fundamental Structure-Property Relationships in Ionomer Nanomcomposites for Redox Flow Batteries”. The technical and non-technical abstract can be found here.
Congratulations to PhD student Allison Jansto for her recent publication titled Role of Surface Chemistry on Nanoparticle Dispersion and Vanadium Ion Crossover in Nafion Nanocomposite Membranes
Five undergraduate students from the Clemson University Student Chapter of the National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE) attended the annual meeting held in Orlando, FL. Two of the students, Ms. Deidra Ward and Ms. Mihkala Cooper, presented their research during the student poster session on Tuesday. Along with this, all five students got a chance to meet and interact with the president of the national NOBCChE organization, Dr. Emanuel Waddell. (see pictures below)
Dr. Eric Davis traveled to Charlottesville, VA to give an invited seminar in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Virginia entitled, “Impact of Nanoparticles on Transport and Segmental Dynamics in Ionomer Nanocomposite Membranes.” A big thanks to Prof. Geoff Geise for hosting!
The Clemson Student Chapter of the National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE) was held on September 12th. While this is only the organization’s second meeting (the student chapter was founded Spring 2018), we are already excited with the student involvement and excitement around the organization.
