|Pawan Tyagi, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering | 202.274.6601, email@example.com
Dr. Pawan Tyagi is the PI for this NSF-CREST funded CNRE. As a CNRE PI, he provides leadership for integrating nanotechnology in education at all levels to broaden the scope of CNRE nanotechnology research. He leads:
|Kate Klein, Ph.D., Chair and Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering | 202.274.7131, firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Kate Klein brings a wealth of knowledge in materials science and skills in microscopy and microanalysis to the CREST center and leads the 2nd project on additive manufacturing. Dr. Klein also oversees CNRE student training in various NIST divisions via different pathways including NIST Prep. Along with serving on the additive manufacturing project, she leads the CNRE educational and outreach components that focuses on recruiting, retaining, and graduating students from underserved minority populations (ME chair role). Dr. Klein also supports GRFP training under CNRE. Initiate Nanotechnology concentration for undergraduate and graduate students in ME department.
|Jiajun Xu, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering | 202.274.5048, email@example.com
Dr. Jiajun Xu is a lead researcher of the 3rd subproject in nanoscale heat transfer. Dr. Xu manages (i) UDC’s state-of-the-art nanoscale heat transfer laboratory he set up with the help of an NSF Research Initiation Grant and (ii) Maintain EOSINT-M280 metal additive manufacturing machine to support subproject, (iii) conduct CNRE’s student competitions (NASA Rover and Student Poster competitions), and (iv) arrange students’ research exposure in the NIST and NRL Conduct summer high school outreach activities
|Hongmei Dang, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering | 202.274.5836, firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Hongmei Dang is a faculty in the Electrical Engineering. Her doctoral research background in nanowire-based and thin film based solar cells and devices will benefit subproject 1(Molecular Spintronics). She possesses knowledge of temperature dependent transport studies, capacitance-voltage, nanoelectronics devices, and electronics device modeling and will manage UDC’s device characterization laboratory. She also teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in nanotechnology. Co-PI Dr. Dang manages the monthly seminar series at UDC.
