RAMP Participants Win First Place in Electrochemical Society Poster Competition

Jul. 6, 2017

Sanjana Das, a Ph.D. student in Electrical Engineering, and Stephanie Silic, an undergraduate student in Electrical Engineering, recently won first place in the student poster session at the Electrochemical Society's 231st annual meeting.

Their poster, titled Nanotechnology for Water-Less Cleaning of Solar Panels, was based on research they undertook in the 2016-17 academic year through the Graduate College's Rebel Research and Mentorship Program (RAMP) and under the advisement of Professor Biswajit Das. 

Through RAMP, undergraduate students, doctoral or MFA graduate students, and faculty advisers work together on projects, giving undergraduate students an opportunity to gain research/scholarly/creative skills and graduate students an opportunity to gain mentorship skills. Participants also receive a conference travel sponsorship.
