and Roy, less serious


Congratulations to Roy Stoflet, who successfully defended his Master’s thesis on Thursday, April 21st! Roy has been a part-time student in the group who has been absolutely critical to the growth and characterization of bismuth-based semiconductors. Congratulations again!

Congratulations Julia!

Congratulations Julia Martin on her contribution to a manuscript published in Materials Today!

Congrats summer researchers!

Summer research has ended and the 2021–2022 school year is about to start, let’s congratulate all of our summer researchers!

Social Distancing
F-to-B: Glori Miranda-Mendez, Nate Keyes, Michelle Frasch, Julia Martin, Emma Pellerin, Abby Berube, Cal Lebak, Bekah Rothacher, and Ryan Hanna
Social Masking
L-to-R: Ryan Hanna, Bekah Rothacher, Glori Miranda-Mendez, Nate Keyes, Michelle Frasch, Julia Martin, Emma Pellerin, Abby Berube, and Cal Lebak


Masks are again the order of the day, and that’s tough at lunchtime.  Congratulations to all for the great progress and camaraderie developed over the last ten weeks.  Not pictured: Angel Fernandez-Sorondo.

Congratulations Becca, Jocelyn, and Kweku!

Becca Dawley Jocelyn Mendes Kweku Colecraft


Congratulations to our graduating fourth-year undergraduates, Becca Dawley, Jocelyn Mendes, and Kweku Colecraft! Each of our fourth-year students won prizes for their research. Becca won the American Institute of Chemists’s award for chemistry undergraduates. Jocelyn won WPI’s Salisbury Prize and the Provost’s MQP Award for outstanding MQP research in Chemistry and Biochemistry. Kweku won the Provost’s MQP Award for outstanding MQP research in Chemical Engineering. As a reminder, all fourth-year undergraduates at WPI complete a project in their field of study. We call it the “Major Qualifying Project” or MQP, but it is very similar to a senior thesis or capstone.

Congratulations to all three of you and best wishes for your ongoing, post-bachelor’s success!
