Indranil Mitra, a Ph.D. candidate in chemical and biomolecular engineering, was selected for the Fifteenth National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering. This two-week program is held in August at Argonne National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The curriculum includes scattering theory, seminars, and beam line demonstrations. Selection for the program is highly competitive, with an historic acceptance rate of 20-30%, and successful applicants receive full travel support.
Nikhila Mahadevapuram, also a Ph.D. candidate in chemical and biomolecular engineering, was selected for this program in 2012. Both Mitra and Mahadevapuram are part of the research group of Ernest J. and Barbara M. Henley Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Gila Stein.
