Six Undergrads Gain Lab Experience at Swedish University
Start: 01/08/09
End: 01/31/11

Six CCNY undergrads, all members of groups underrepresented in engineering and science, traveled to Sweden this past summer for laboratory experiences in chemical engineering and material science at Stockholm’s Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). Four of the students, members of Assistant Professor Ilona Kretzschmar’s laboratory, were funded through a NSF International Research Experience for Engineers grant that supplements her CAREER Award. Two others were supported through the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation. All of their projects related directly to Professor Kretzschmar’s CAREER Award investigation into Molecularly Directed Assembly of “ Patchy” Particles, or involved skills that are transferable to it. “KTH and CCNY are very similar in terms of the type of student body they serve,” she noted, adding that the institution also has strong research overlap with CCNY through its investigation of interfacial phenomena and surface science. Amara Enemuo, a computer engineering major, admitted she “was nervous about carrying out research in chemistry” and spent the first week “learning the basics of my project.” However, by the fourth week she began doing experiments on her own. Other students who went to Sweden were: chemical engineering majors Julius Edson, Charlie Corredor and Diana Castillo, and chemistry graduate students Ayanna Moses and Terrance Burks.
