Summer Interns

DNI was honored to host three high school interns this summer!  

These impressive teens, Faraz, Carnegie, and Alejandro joined us from July 5-August 4 for an intensive internship working alongside PhD students Eliot Precetti, Roman Rakhmanov, and Jamie FitzPatrick.  

Faraz and Eliot studied MXene in silkworms in an effort to create MXene silk threads, Carnegie and Jamie worked to look at what happens when MXene is fed to plants (with a special crossover experiment with Faraz and Eliot!), and Alejandro and Roman investigated conductivity of MXene for RFID applications.  

Congratulations to Faraz, Carnegie, and Alejandro on the completion of their internships!
