MEAM Thesis Defense: “Inkjet Printed Neuromorphic Inference Circuits with Memristor-Based Neuron Network”

The deployment of machine learning inference algorithms on Internet of Things (IoT) devices remains challenging. Despite the low fabrication cost, flexibility, and low power consumption of the printed electronics for IoT applications, there are not many demonstrations of printed electronics solving neural network tasks, mainly due to the poor electrical performance, low device yield, and […]

MSE Seminar: “Predicting and Controlling Scalable Quantum Systems”

Quantum materials host spectacular excited-state and nonequilibrium effects, but many of these phenomena remain challenging to control and, consequently, technologically underexplored. My group’s research, therefore, focuses on how quantum systems behave, particularly away from equilibrium, and how we can harness these effects. By creating predictive theoretical and computational approaches to study dynamics, decoherence and correlations […]

MSE Seminar: “Atomic-scale Insights into Electrocatalyst Structure and Function”

The development of efficient renewable energy conversion and storage devices is one of the most important challenges of the 21st century. Fuel cell catalysis, CO2 reduction, etc. are interesting reactions that can transform our energy economy; however, many of these reactions are sluggish from unfavorable reaction kinetics and poor product selectivity. These renewable energy technologies […]

MSE Seminar: “Bio-like Structural Hydrogels with Life-like Intelligence”

From the cellular level up to the body system level, living organisms present elegant designs and strategies to realize the desirable structures, properties and functions. For example, tendons and muscles are tough but soft, owing to highly complex hierarchical structures rarely found in synthetic materials. Plants can automatically track the sun and our body can […]

MSE Seminar: “Reaction-Diffusion Driven Pattern Formation in Thermosetting Polymers”

Reaction-diffusion processes are versatile, yet underexplored methods for manufacturing that provide unique opportunities to control the spatial properties of materials, achieving order through broken symmetry. The mathematical formalism and derivation of equations coupling reaction and diffusion were presented in the seminal paper by Alan Turing [Phil. Trans. R. Soc. Lond. B 237, 37,1952], which describes […]

MSE Seminar: “Future Directions in Self-Assembly for Nanopatterning”

Macromolecular self-assembly has evolved to become an important and valuable tool for bottom-up patterning and fabrication at the nanometer scale. From block copolymer lithography to nanocrystal superlattices to biomolecular assemblies, bottom-up patterning is reaching an unprecedent level of control over complex patterns at the nanoscale with an increasing degree of precision. There is no question […]

Technology, Business and Government Lecture: “STEM and the Future of Work- A Conversation with Rep. Chrissy Houlahan”

Representative Houlahan will speak about how her experiences as a former teacher and engineer have shaped her priorities and work in Congress, and about the importance of STEM work/jobs across all sectors of society. Zoom Webinar Link Passcode: 130891

MSE Seminar: “When ions meet electrons — Modeling the interfaces in Solid-State Batteries”

With the rapid development of fast Li-ion conductors, the major bottleneck for all-solid-state Li-ion batteries lies at the high interfacial resistance and Li dendrite growth. These problems require a fundamental understanding of the interfaces, where charge transfer reactions occur and electrochemistry, physics, and solid mechanics are coupled. This talk will focus on the new mechanistic […]
