Wu grad student receives MRS Grad Student Award
Yixiu Wang presented his research on 2-D tellurene nanelectronics, a new 2D material discovered in the Wu lab, in a ten-minute presentation during the meeting, to compete for the graduate student awards.
The MRS GSA is the highest award given to graduate students of exceptional ability who show promise for significant future achievement in materials research. This year, only 19 students globally were selected, and Purdue University sent three awardees to the meeting (the other two students are from Chemistry and ME). Finalists receive the Graduate Student Gold ($400) or Silver ($200) Award with a certificate and a pin.
