Welcome to FAM's Research website!
7/10/2009 Summer research starts!!
This summer, we have 10 undergraduate students in SURP program, 2 students in CAMP program, and 2 in UCLead. We also have one new graduate student join us. Let's work hard!!
6/10/2009 UC LEADS program
Josh Yee, an undergraudate student in our group,had been admitted into the UC LEADS program for the 2009-2011 cohort. UC LEADS is best honor program for undergraduate student. Josh has been working with us for 2 year and done a great job on his projects- hardnees and grain boundary sliding. We are all very happy for him and proud of him. Detail about UC LEADS program could be found in the following link:http://www.grad.uci.edu/diversity/ucleads.htm
Clara Druzgalski, an undergraudate student in FAM's group,was offered a paid internship this summer at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to work with Dr.Zhang on Self-assembly of carbon nanotube arrays. The internship is funded by the US Department of Energy.
