Shiba P Adhikari, a graduate student working on Materials for Sustainable Energy was best poster presentation at the NANOMANUFACTURING 2014 conference held at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering
Graduate student, Shiba Adhikari, from Dr Lachgar’s lab recently was awarded best poster presentation at the NANOMANUFACTURING 2014 conference. The conference was held at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) on the South Campus of Gateway University Research Park (Gateway) in Greensboro, North Carolina, USA on Wednesday September 24, 2014. Shiba’s work focuses on the development of more efficient photocatalysts for the production of hydrogen from water (water splitting) and decomposition of toxic organic chemicals. His poster is titled “Ta2O5/Bi2O3, TaON/Bi2O3, and Ta3N5/Bi2O3 Nano-composites for Photocatalytic Applications”. The conference Keynote speakers were Dr. Lisa Friedersdorf,Deputy Director of the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO)], and Dr. Mark Johnson, Director of Advanced Manufacturing Office at the Department of Energy]
Similarly, Department of Chemistry, Wake Forest University has recently awarded Shiba Adhikari with “Outstanding First year graduate student award” for his superior academic performance and outstanding early research engagement. The amount of this award was $ 500.
