Mohamed Hassan, a Chemistry Ph.D. student in Clarkson University Egon Matijevic Endowed Chair of Chemistry & Biomolecular Science Silvana Andreescu’s lab has won a travel award to the 240th Electrochemical Society’s (ECS) Meeting in October.
“Mr. Hassan’s presentation will describe the development of a monolithic cerium nanoparticle assembly as a platform for wearable electronics and environmental decontamination. Through tailored design and synthesis, Mr. Hassan discovered the ability of ceria nanoparticles to assemble into a monolithic structure, thus enabling large-scale fabrication into a solid-state processable form while maintaining their functionality and ability to recognize and detect solar radiation and identify emerging pollutants. These results are expected to help establish new design principles for developing the next generation technologies to measure radiation and associated conditions in the environment,” Professor Andreescu said.
The 240th ECS Meeting brings together the most active researchers in academia, government and industry—professionals and students—to engage, discuss, and innovate in the areas of electrochemistry and solid state science and technology. This is the premier destination for industry professionals to experience five days of learning, technical presentations, business development, and networking opportunities in the electrochemistry field.
“Mr. Hassan is an exceptionally talented young investigator who has a passion for research and is poised to make significant contributions to the electrochemistry, materials and sensing fields. His research activities and accomplishments are truly outstanding, with an already impressive record of publications in top electrochemistry and materials journals. The travel grant would allow him to present his very exciting work at the fall ECS meeting, and more importantly, to promote his novel finding and initiate new collaborations, and contacts with world-renowned electrochemistry and sensing experts. This all contributes to increasing Clarkson's reputation nationally and internationally.” Andreescu said.
