Gregory Hogan ’16 and Zachery Brown ’17 attended a professional meeting where they gave an oral presentation about their research. 15th Mid-Atlantic Soft Matter Workshop was held on July 24 2015 at University of Maryland. The goal of the workshop is to create a highly interdisciplinary workshop that draws upon researchers from academic, industrial and National Laboratories in the Mid-Atlantic region. A soft matter workshop provides an ideal forum for researchers with interests that reside at the interface of conventional disciplines. The workshop will also naturally assist in the career advancement of young scientists by acquainting them with the local academic and industrial research community.
