Foreign Research Experience
Stephanie de Coteau, a Foreign Research Experience student from the University of the West Indies and St. Augustine, who worked with Professors Alleyne and Kenis and researched integrated microfluidic sensing and control.
Nano-CEMMS has partnered with foreign institutions to develop international cooperative research programs in nanomanufacturing. Each year Nano-CEMMS funds up to five graduate students to spend time at research institutions in Asia and Europe. The program for foreign training is centered on key elements of Nano-CEMMS research and builds on existing relationships that Nano-CEMMS faculty members have with foreign institutions:
- In Singapore, the Center is developing a cluster relationship that centers around three Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR) institutes: the Institute for High Performance Computation, the Singapore Institute for Manufacturing Technology, and the Nanyang Technological University.
- In Korea, collaborative research efforts have been established with two leading universities: Seoul National University and Yonsei University. The focus of our collaboration with the Korean Institutes is on micro- and nano-fabrication processes.
- In France, collaborations have been developed with the Service de Physique et Chimie des Surfaces et des Interfaces (SPCSI).
- In the Netherlands, our collaborations are with the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Eindhoven University.
