Postdoctoral research associates and graduate students associated with ND Energy affiliated faculty are invited to the monthly PD&GS Luncheon Seminars. Seminars are presented by group members about their research to facilitate cross-disciplinary research collaborations and to provide a forum whereby postdocs and graduate students may gain a better understanding of the energy-related research programs at Notre Dame.
Seminars also provide an opportunity for participants to practice their talks before a major conference and to obtain feedback from their peers.
Scheduled graduate student presentations for April's seminar are:
- "Design of Intrinsically Microporous Iptycene-based Polymers for Enhanced Gas Separation Membranes," by Tanner Corrado (Guo lab)
- "Rare earth element interactions with uranium oxides: A nuclear forensics approach," by Rebecca Carter (Hixon lab)
Additionally, Leesa Duckworth from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) will give a short presentation on the NNSA Graduate Student Fellowship Program (NGFP). She will also discuss other career opportunities at PNNL.
