Congratulations to Hope Klukovich, who today passed her prelim exam!
Congratulations to Jenn Hawk, whose research was honored last night at the Gilbert Awards Symposium by the NC Polymer Discussion Group. Jenn gave a talk entitled “Stronger Gels from Weaker Bonds” and received $200 in recognition of her work — money she is sure to share with her beloved labmates.
Donghua’s paper on the unexpectedly complex, steady-shear behavior of supramolecular networks has been accepted for publication in J. Phys. Chem. Lett. The paper describes a rare (and perhaps unprecedented) example of experimental results that unambiguously demonstrate the contributions of multiple, competing dynamic processes to the shear thickening and shear thinning behavior of reversibly cross-linked polymer networks.
Congratulations to Ashley Black, who passed her prelim today!
Congratulations to Ashley Black and her now-fiancé Taylor, who became engaged over the weekend!
