VPD Group Undergraduate Awarded FellowshipJuly 2013
VPD Group undergraduate, Conner Dykstra, has received one of three 2013 Chemistry of Life Processes Institute Summer Scholars Fellowships. The $4,000 Summer Scholars award is composed of a $3,000 portion for general expenses and a $1,000 portion for lab supplies.
This summer Conner will work with VPD Group graduate student Yi-Kai Huang in Professor Dravid's labs. Their research will focus on 2-D layered semiconductor material for gas sensing applications.
Conner will provide a brief slide presentation (15 minutes) of his summer research accomplishments during the undergraduate fellowship luncheon at the end of the summer.
