This REU site award provides research opportunities for 8 undergraduates for 10 weeks during the summer. The research projects are in cutting-edge environmental nanoscience research & technology and will be carried our under close guidance from faculty mentors. The participants will integrate in a research group that consists of undergraduate and graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars. They will receive an introduction to and overview of state-of-the-art instrumentation and access to high performance computing facilities. In addition to research, REU students will attend seminars and short courses on Nanomaterials Science and Engineering, acquire technical presentation skills, and receive career guidance that will continue beyond the summer program. This award is funded by the Divisions of Chemistry, National Science Foundation (NSF).
