Sundaresan and Maddox win awards at Denman Undergraduate Research Forum

The lab won two awards yesterday evening at the 2016 Undergraduate Research Forum.

Dr. Sundaresan won the Distinguished Undergraduate Mentor award at the forum. More details about this award and other winners are available at this link.

Jacob Maddox won the 3rd place for his poster related to his thesis – Scanning Electrochemical Microscope Electrode Fabrication. His thesis on the same topic discusses the fabrication process for SECM electrodes with high sensitivity for shear force imaging. Congratulations Jacob!!!
