Dr. Yushin was recently recognized by NC State, his alma mater, for his accomplishments in the space of nanotechnology research, his co-founding of Sila Nanotechnologies, and the strides he has made for Materials Today as editor-in-chief.
Three of our PhD students Ani, Enbo, Dan, and DongChan matriculated this past spring/summer semester.
Reserves of cobalt and nickel used in electric-vehicle cells will not meet future demand.
Congrats Alexis Day and Edelmy Mara joined our group for summer research program
Kolby Hanley, a third year undergraduate student in the Yushin lab, has won the 2018 InVenture prize of $20,000, a free patent filing, and a spot in the GT startup accelerator Flashpoint for his company UltraView. Kolby has invented a one-of-a-kind lightweight device to help competitive archers aim and illuminate their targets. Koly himself is a four time national champion in archery, and at one point was the top archer under 21 in the nation. Congratualtions, Kolby!
