Undergraduate researcher Sebastian Haney came from UC Berkeley to conduct research at Texas A&M University over the summer. Sebastian’s research found a correlation between water content and the type of anion on gelation of PVA in salt hydrate PCMs, with gelation mechanisms depending on the position of the anion in the Hofmeister series. In his time with the Sukhishvili group, Sebastian developed his skills in scientific presentation, infrared spectroscopy, rheology, data analysis, and literature search. His research was presented at the TAMU REU/USRG symposium on Aug. 4th, 2023.
Congratulations, Sebastian, for your hard work and success! We wish you the best in all of your future endeavors.
Undergraduate researcher Viktoria Theodorou came from the University of Cyprus to conduct research at Texas A&M University over the summer. She studied the mechanical properties of various layer-by-layer film systems. Her culmination of results was presented at a poster session and ceremony on July 27th, 2023.
Congratulations, Viktoria, for all of your hard work and successes! We enjoyed your company around the lab, and you will be missed!
