Graduate students

We are continuously searching for highly motivated Ph.D. students joining the group. If you are interested in applying Ph.D. fellowship together, please contact me. More fellowships for doctoral candidates and also here.

Undergraduates

  • Yusuf Zaidi
    • Awarded NASA Connecticut Space Grant Consortium Internship
  • Kalin Kochnev
    • Awarded UConn Summer Undergraduate Research Fund (SURF) Awards
    • Awarded NASA Connecticut Space Grant Consortium Undergraduate Scholarship

Highly-motivatd undergraduate students are encouraged to get in touch. If you are interested in applying NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU), please contact me. UConn students can check funding opportunites from Office of Undergraduate Research. More opportunities for undergraduate students is here.

Visiting Students and Scholars

  • Weichen Zhao
  • Lichuan Xu

Visiting students and scholars are welcome to contact and discuss potential collaborative projects.

Postdocs

Currently, we only consider postdocs with external sources of fundings or fellowship right now. If you are interested in applying postdoc fellowship together, please contact me to discuss potential project. More Fellowships for postdocs and early career professionals and also here.

High School Students and Teachers

  • Ray Hu
  • Benjamin Machlus

Highly motivated high school students interested in Science Research Competitions are welcome to contact. K-14 educators who are interested in Research Experiences for Teachers in Engineering and Computer Science are welcome to contact.
