Aniruddha Kulkarni, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Chemical Engineering (ChE), is 1 of 60 students selected to attend the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering (NX School) hosted jointly by Argonne National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory on June 15-26, 2020.
“I am thrilled to have this opportunity to learn from the experts in the field from some of the leading facilities in the world,” Kulkarni said. “I hope to learn how to utilize these incredibly complex experimental techniques in my research projects.”
Kulkarni’s research focuses on the understanding and modification of nanoscale interfaces for biomedical applications. He is supervised by Kirk Ziegler, Ph.D., a ChE professor.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NX School has converted to a virtual format.
“This training involves a combined lecture and experimental approach which will educate me to effectively carry out experiments in the future and to collaborate with scientists at these facilities,” Kulkarni said.
