MSE graduate student, Hugh Grennan, successfully completed his master’s degree!
Congratulations to MSE graduate student, Hugh Grennan, on successfully completed his master’s degree! Hugh was advised by Professor David Bahr, and his research focused on nanomechanical and chemical characterization techniques to evaluate the properties of organic molecular crystals. By using nanoindentation on these small-scale crystals, he investigated their elastic-plastic transition relative to crystal packing and studied crystals' non-conformal mechanical response. Hugh is now pursuing a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech.
