A group photo after the first group meeting in Spring 2018, in front of ME department building Palmer Engineering:
Four undergrads, Gunner, Zachary, Edward, and Angelo, have joined SRG since Dec. 1. We look forward to the exciting projects you guys will be contributing to!
SRG members Amir, Milad and Wanliang attended IMECE 2018 in Tampa from November 3 to 9. Each gave a talk and enjoyed the best weather in Tampa year round.
Wanliang gave his first ever invited talk at a conference. Many thanks to Prof. Baoxing Xu at University of Virginia for the invitation!
SRG member Amir has been awarded Graduate Dean’s Merit Scholarship for the academic year 2017-2018. This scholarship recognizes graduate students who have made significant achievement during study at UNR. The scholarship totals $5000 and is split into two semesters. Congrats Amir!
Amir and Wanliang enjoyed their first ever Gordon Research Conference so much, with new friends made, ideas exchanged and basketball court visited. Their posters about dry adhesion enhancement and dynamical tuning were very well received.
During the conference, Amir and Wanliang also met with SRG collaborators at Penn (Aoyi and Kevin) to discuss the ongoing NSF project. Hope things play out as planned!
Wanliang also visited Princeton for one day and a half after the conference. It was great to be back home!
NSF MEP program has approved our REU supplement proposal to SRG’s first NSF award. A total of $16k will be used to support two undergrads for research this summer and the upcoming academic year. This brings the total award amount to $625k with UNR share of $356k. We thank NSF for the support!
