IMDEA Materials Institute welcomes students from Michigan State and Princeton universities

IMDEA Materials Institute has welcomed five students from Michigan State University and Princeton University in the United States for a two-month research stay.

The students, Connor Wasick, Robert Crouse, Maggie Gaunt, Zackery Thune and Alex Bakke from Michigan State and Yvette Biddle from Princeton University, will assist in a variety of research projects, including the CARDIOBOOST-CM and BIOMET4D biotechnology programs as well as projects involving polymer sensors, CAD design of 3D additive manufactured materials, and modelling of materials recrystallization processes.

The research exchanges form part of IMDEA Materials Institute’s collaborations with foreign universities, in particular with Michigan State, a relationship which has now been ongoing for more than a decade.

The current student exchange is funded by the National Science Foundation’s International Research Experience for Students (IRES) program, and is another example of IMDEA Materials’ efforts to encourage international collaborations and research initiatives among young scientists, not only from Spain, but from around the world.
