Kevin Kimura and Eric McShane (both working in the Hanrath Lab) have been awarded prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowships.
Kevin Kimura has joined the Hanrath Lab last year and is studying photochemical reduction of CO2 to liquid fuels. The award recognizes his his enthusiastic combination of intellectual curiosity, creativity, and passion for science and discovery. Kevin is also involved in several outreach and education activities in collaboration with the Cornell’s Center for Materials Research.
Eric joined the Hanrath Lab as a Rawlings Cornell Presidential Scholar. Eric’s research has focused on the scalable synthesis of silicon nanostructures for applications in high-capacity next-generation Li-ion batteries. Eric will be attending graduate school in the Fall of 2016.
The NSF graduate fellowship is awarded to just ~2,000 outstanding students out of ~17,000 applicants across all STEM fields.
