Congratulations to Parvin Karimineghlani for successfully defending her dissertation! Dr. Karimineghlani earned her degree based on her work on “Thermoresponsive Polymer Networks in an Inorganic Ionic Liquid Phase Change Material”.
Congratulations to Adwait, Hanna, Parvin, and Victor on their new publication! The current and former students’ research has been accepted for publication in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. The article titled “Hydrogen-Bonded, Mechanically Strong Nanofibers with Tunable Antioxidant Activity” will be available online soon.
The Women in Materials Science (WIMS) organization, advised by Dr. Sukhishvili, provided departmental information and performed demonstrations for prospective high school students and their parents at Aggieland Saturday. From the Sukhishvili group, graduate students Hanna Hlushko, Diana Al Husseini, and Jordan Brito volunteered during this event.

PhD student Raman Hlushko’s research has been accepted for publication in Macromolecules. The article titled “Layer-by-Layer Hydrogen-Bonded Antioxidant Films of Linear Synthetic Polyphenols” is now available online.
The research of PhD student Qing Zhou has been recognized by the U.S. Army as one of the top science and technology advances of 2019. His research on self-healing polymers placed second in the video shown below, posted by the U.S. Army CCDC Army Research Laboratory.
Congratulations to Victoria Albright, Ph.D. for her successful defense and graduation. The Sukhishvili group celebrated her graduation in Rudder Auditorium on December 7, 2019. She has been a great friend and mentor to many, and we will certainly miss her around the laboratory. We wish her all the best in future endeavors!
Congratulations to Victoria Albright for winning the 2019 College of Engineering Outstanding Graduate Student Award! Each year, the College of Engineering selects one doctoral student and one master’s student for this award. The recipients must demonstrate excellence above and beyond usual levels of achievement.
The Sukhishvili group’s research on stimuli-responsive biomedical soft materials has been highlighted on the Texas A&M Engineering website. The news article, titled “Rising temperatures: Sukhishvili and team develop novel biomedical soft materials”, provides updates for the group’s research and recent student accomplishments.

Undergraduate students led by Victoria Albright, Raman Hlushko, and Hanna Hlushko presented their research at the LAUNCH Undergraduate Research Expo on October 2, 2019. These students are part of the Aggie Research Program at Texas A&M.
Victoria led two research teams that each presented a poster. Danielle Yarbrough and Samantha Hernandez presented a poster titled “Modulating Drug Delivery via Polymer Interaction Strength”, and Jeremy Zheng and Christian Frey presented “Antimicrobial Coatings”.
Raman’s research team presented “Antioxidant Hydrogen-Bonded Coatings of Linear Synthetic Polyphenols”.
Led by Hanna, Brent Vela and William Zenor presented “Layer by Layer Assembled Coatings of Antioxidant Polymers” (pictured below).
