Congratulations to Dr. Protyush Sahu! He has successfully defended his thesis titled "Characterization of Spin Hall and Magnetoionic Devices for Logic, Memory and Neuromorphic Applications" and will join ASM America as a Sr. Process Engineer. Dr. Sahu, all the best in your future endeavours!

Fareware to Ms. Anne Johnson

July 29, 2021

July 30th marks the last day of Ms. Anne Johnson's journey in our group. Ms. Johnson joined our group through the 2021 Research Experience for Teachers (RET) Program and worked with Shuang Liang on granular GMR biosensors. When she returns to Robbinsdale Cooper High School, she will bring her exciting knowledge of nanotechnology to more high school students. Cheers! We hope to see you again in the future.
