BS/Ph.D. student Prineha Narang has been awarded a scholarship from the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch-Dienst (DAAD) Research Internships for Science & Engineering (RISE) program.
Prineha will spend up to three months this summer at the Fraunhofer Institut in Bremen, Germany, working on a project to tailor carbon nanotube surfaces using plasma technology. This project will allow Prineha to build on the research experience she has had at Drexel, supervised by Prof. Yury Gogotsi, and in close collaboration with the Drexel Plasma Institute. The goal of her project is to optimize nanoscale corona discharge in liquids to enable plasma modification of carbon nanotubes and create unique nanostructures.
Over 1200 students applied to 600 projects available through the DAAD-RISE program.
