Summer guests of SNM and LC Nano groups

On the 12th of July 2013, Julia Martius (left), Joe Angelo (middle) and Larry Honaker (right) came to Seoul to spend 3 months (Julia) and 1 month (Joe and Larry) together with us. Julia has just finished her Bachelor thesis at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany and as a DAAD RISE scholarship holder she will be working during summer and early fall in the SNM group on producing and studying liquid crystal droplets and shells. Joe and Larry are visiting from Kent State University within the framework of an NSF IRES grant for which Joe’s advisor, Prof. Antal Jakli, is the PI. The SNM group of Jan Lagerwall and the LC Nano lab of Giusy Scalia are Korean partners in this multinational project. Joe and Larry will be working on electrospinning and functionalization of polymers with liquid crystals and nano particles. (Photo by Dae Kyom Kim.)
