Dr. Swapnil Morankar successfully completes his PhD!

Event Date: September 7, 2023

Congratulations to Swapnil Morankar on completing his PhD under the guidance of Professor Nikhilesh Chawla! His thesis investigated structure-property correlations in natural biological materials like sea sponges, cacti, and sea corals, aiming to apply these insights for biomimetic purposes. The research outcomes have significant implications in designing advanced lightweight structural materials. He has accepted a Postdoctoral Research Associate position at Idaho National Laboratory.
