Professor Vesselin Shanov and his group continue to excel in their exploration and development of nanomaterials

During the past calendar year of Dr. Vesselin Shanov and his group, including collaborators for the US Academia have published 16 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 1 book chapter and 1 full US Patent. Dr. Shanov and co-workers` current discovery on a new carbon form called “3D graphene” and its application in energy storage devices, has attracted attention worldwide. The finding has been protected by an UC patent application and some of the current results have been published in the January 5, 2017 issue of the high impact factor journal Small.

1.  Dr. Peter Smirniotis is Elected Fellow of the Graduate School

The Fellows of the Graduate School recognize distinguished researchers and scholars at the University of Cincinnati. This group represents some of the most experienced and accomplished graduate-student mentors at the university and they are a significant resource of talent and intellect at UC. Dr. Smirniotis works in the area of catalysis and has recently had some very seminal publications on the gas phase oxidation of organic pollutants by doped-titanium catalysts.  Congratulations to Professor Smirniotis for his election!

1.  Rickey Terrell named a Barry Goldwater Foundation scholar for 2017

Rickey Terrell, an undergraduate in the chemical engineering program, was named a Barry Goldwater Foundation scholar for 2017. The Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation was established by Congress in 1986 to serve as a living memorial to honor the lifetime work of Senator Barry Goldwater.  The purpose of the program is to provide support for undergraduate students who are preparing for careers in science, mathematics, and engineering research. Rickey is mentored by Dr. Anastasios Angelopoulos and hopes to pursue his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering and research and fuel cell energy production for transportation applications to provide cheap and clean energy on a global scale.
