Three graduate students won poster presentation awards and cash prizes at the annual review meeting of the Emulsion Polymers Institute’s Industrial Liaison Program held March 16 and 17.
Matthew Ray, a graduate student in chemistry, was awarded first prize for his poster, which was titled “Dynamic Self-Assembly of Latex Particles to Form Linear Patterns.” His adviser is Li Jia, assistant professor of chemistry.
Hyungsoo Kim, a Ph.D. candidate in polymer science and engineering, took second prize for a poster titled “Metal Encapsulation of Latex Particles.” His advisers are Andrew Klein, professor of chemical engineering, and Eric S. Daniels and Victoria L. Dimonie, EPI principal research scientists.
Megan B. Casey, a graduate student in chemical engineering, took third prize for a poster titled “Study of Monomer Droplet Size Distributions in Miniemulsions.” She is advised by Mohamed S. El-Aasser, university provost and professor of chemical engineering, and EPI principal research scientist E. David Sudol.
The posters, presented at an evening poster session, were evaluated for content, appearance and presentation by representatives from companies that support the EPI’s research programs.
