Travel Awards 2017
As the Editor-in-Chief of Micromachines, I am pleased to announce the two winners of the 2017 Micromachines Travel Awards: Kevin Paulsen, Ph.D. Candidate at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Ke Du, Postdoctoral Scholar at University of California, Berkeley. The awards consist of 800 Swiss Francs each to attend any academic conference in the second half year of 2017 or first half year of 2018.
Mr. Kevin Paulsen’s research involves 3D particles, particle fabrication, optofluidics and inertial microfluidics. He will present his research “Sub-100 micron 3D-shaped particles from optofluidic fabrication with on-the-fly pillar fabrication” at the 21st International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (MicroTAS 2017), 22 –26 October 2017, in Savannah, Georgia, USA. Dr. Ke Du works on microfluidics, micro- and nanomanufacturing, and nanomaterials. He will present his research on optofluidic waveguides and sensors at the Hilton Head Workshop 2018: A Solid-State Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems Workshop, which will be held at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, USA, 3–7 June 2018.
It was a difficult decision, given the exceptional quality of more than 50 applications for the awards, and on behalf of the award committee, I would like to thank all applicants and to congratulate Mr. Kevin Paulsen and Dr. Ke Du for their accomplishments.
