Summer of 2016 has been a great time for new talent in the Mechanosynthesis Group. Talha Hasan, a graduate student in MIT’s IDM program, joined us in May. We also welcome Jonathan Gibbs, a member of the U.S. Armed Forces and new graduate student to the group. Lastly, we welcome Yu Zou, a Postdoctoral Fellow from ETH Zurich with expertise in materials characterization for additive manufacturing.
