Materials Science and Engineering Ph.D. student John Chmiola (advisor: Yury Gogotsi) has been selected to receive a travel fellowship, funded by the National Science Foundation, to attend the European Ceramic Society Meeting in Berlin, Germany from June 17-21, 2007.
Chmiola has received NSF IGERT and Graduate Research Fellowships to support his Ph.D. study focused on nano-structured carbon materials for supercapacitor electrodes. He will present a talk titled, “Transforming Carbide Ceramics to Carbon: A Way to Advanced Supercapacitors,” at the meeting in Berlin. Chmiola and colleagues’ (G. Yushin, C. Portet, P. Simon, and P. L. Taberna) research on supercapacitors, led by Dr. Gogotsi, was the subject of an article published in Science, and on www.scitizen.com, a science news source for the general public.
