Prof. Poulikakos gave an invited talk at the META 2021 conference titled “Diagnostic Colorimetric Metasurfaces Visualize Disease in Fibrous Biological Tissue” in the session “Light-matter Interactions in New Materials and Meta-Architectures.” Thank you to Nicolò Maccaferri, Vincenzo Caligiuri, Mario Miscuglio and Said Zouhdi for the invitation!
We had to say a bittersweet goodbye to Jebin, one of the group’s founding members, at Bobboi Natural Gelato this Tuesday. Jebin is leaving the lab to work as an engineer at Intel.
Jebin, thank you so much for all your hard work over the past year. You will be greatly missed!
Prof. Poulikakos gave a talk at the “Complex Beams and Chiral Nanophotonics” seminar organized by Profs. Stefan Maier, Emiliano Cortés and Leonardo Menezes at the Hybrid Nanosystems Chair at LMU Munich (https://www.hybridplasmonics.org). Thank you to Fedja Wendisch for the invitation!
Our lab members research in style! See Zaid and Jebin wearing fashionable Nano3 Cleanroom PPE below.
After all lab members were fully vaccinated, the group had a celebration dinner to recognize this year’s accomplishments: several graduations, excellent research progress, brilliantly written papers, and incredible resilience throughout the pandemic!
Sending a warm welcome to our three undergraduate researchers: Dhruv Parmar, Chris Park, and Trinity Pike! Today, they received an in-person introduction to the Chemistry Lab to prepare for summer work.
Two of our lab members graduated in June 2021. Huge congratulations to Jebin Joshua Moses (M.S. in Nanoengineering) and Trinity Pike (B.S. in Mechanical Engineering)!
Prof. Poulikakos was selected as an Fellow for the 3-year RCSA Scialog program on Advancing Bioimaging which had its inaugural meeting on May 20-21 2021. Scialog stands for “science + dialog”. This three year program brings together 55 multidisciplinary early-career faculty from across the US to catalyze collaborative and innovative research projects in the area of bioimaging. The program is funded by the Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA), the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and the Frederick Gardner Cottrell Foundation.
