New students have joined the Korley Research Group!
Two materials science and engineering students, Jessica Thomas and Maida Mahmood, and one chemical engineering student, Yu Tai Wong, have joined the Korley Research Group. Jessica will be pursing work in supramolecular chemistries, and Maida and Yu Tai will focus their work around lignin research.
Look out for Dr. LaShanda Korley’s talk at ACS Orlando this April!
Dr. Korley will be discussing bio-inspired supramolecular systems that mimic biological mechanics on April 4, and she was named one of the ‘must-see presenters’ for the conference. Exciting new work from the Korley Research Group!
Kris successfully passed his Ph.D. thesis proposal, advancing to candidacy!
Congratulations to Dr. Michelle T. Brannum!
Michelle successfully defended her CWRU Ph.D. thesis, “Functional Performance of Liquid Crystalline Elastomers”. Funded by a SMART Fellowship, Michelle’s research interests sparked a wonderful collaboration with Tim White (UC Boulder/AFRL) and Gary Wnek (co-advisor). Best wishes in your future career at AFRL.
Congrats to Michelle on her recent publication in Advanced Optical Materials!
