The Department is excited to announce that our graduate student Charlie Xiao has been awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship!

Charlie’s work falls at the interface of thermodynamics and robotics. Specifically, his NSF GRFP fellowship will focus on harvesting energy from temperature fluctuations using vaporization for robotic applications. His work will lay the foundational framework for this modality of energy harvesting, creating a fundamental understanding of the process through both theory and experiment.

Congratulations Charlie!
