Doctoral student in mechanical engineering places second in poster competition
Shakir Bin Mujib, Kansas State University doctoral student in mechanical engineering, took second place in the Graduate Student Poster Competition of the Engineering Ceramics Division of the American Ceramic Society’s 44th International Conference and Expo on Advanced Ceramics and Composites on Jan. 26-31, 2020, in Daytona Beach, Florida. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the winner selection was delayed until Feb. 8, 2021.
The conference showcases cutting-edge research and product developments in advanced ceramics armor ceramics, solid oxide fuel cells, ceramic coatings, bioceramics and more.
Shakir’s poster, “Biomass-derived carbons and PDC functionalized carbon composites for electrochemical energy storage,” reflects the work of his thesis that deals with polymer-derived ceramic fibers and composites for energy applications. His advising professor is Gurpreet Singh, associate professor and designee of the Harold O. and Jane C. Massey Neff professorship in mechanical engineering.
