Congratulations to Wanliang and Gunner! This award is to help explore the commercialization potential of dynamically tunable adhesives technology spinning off the previous NSF CMMI award.
Incoming Mater’s student Gunner is serving as Entrepreneurial Lead, and Wanliang is serving as PI and Technical Lead. Daniel Mendez, experienced entrepreneur and Prof. Jim La’s Ph.D. student at CSE, will serve as Mentor. The team will commit six weeks of this summer to intense customer interviews.
Many thanks to Jim for the help on team assembling!!!
