Gregory Freihofer wins 2nd place at the SAMPE CAMX student paper competition
Lab member Zachary Stein will spend the fall 2018 semester attending classes at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) in Switzerland. ZHAW was founded in 1874 as a technical school for mechanical engineering, and has since become one of Switzerland’s largest engineering schools.
While in Switzerland, Zac will continue his research projects remotely. He will prepare a presentation on his summer project investigating the effects of sand ingression on thermal barrier coatings, for which he was awarded a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship. He will also work with Khanh Vo, developing and 3D-printing stress-sensing composite materials; for this work, Zac and Khanh were awarded a grant from the Office of Undergraduate Research. Zac will present posters on both projects at the Showcase of Undergraduate Research Excellence in the spring of 2019.
We wish Zac the best during his time abroad and wish him safe travels.
