Philip Wheat was selected as 2006 Fulton Fellow. Fulton fellowships are designed to recruit and retain high quality doctoral students at ASU. Philip will work under Jonathan Posner on topics related to electrokinetic transport in microchannels and hybrid biomolecular -silicon biosensors.
The Division of Fluid Dynamics of the American Physical Society selected Ph.D. student Philip Wheat as a travel award recipient for the 2006 annual meeting. Philip will be presenting his work on “Quantification of Electrokinetic Micromixing using Ion-indicating Dyes.”
Steven Klein was selected for the Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative (FURI). The FURI program is focused on cultivating excellence in engineering undergraduate research. Steve will be developing giga-Ohm electrical isolators using PDMS soft lithography. His work is related to electrical isolation for protein ion-channel biosensors.
Jonathan Posner gave an invited talk in the Micromixing Symposium at the 15th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics on the “Quantification Of Convective Electrokinetic Instability Micromixing using Ion Indicating Dyes” in Boulder CO
Jonathan Posner spoke about “Leveraging Microscale Transport for Advancements in Health, Energy, and Sustainability” at the Research in Engineering and Applied Sciences Symposium.
