Shuohan Huang, a Ph.D. student in chemistry, won first place in the Science as Art competition organized by the Materials Research Society. Her advisor is Dr. Vadym Mochalin, associate professor of chemistry.
Huang’s artwork, named “Goldfish” (mrs.org/programs-outreach/science-as-art/winners) was selected by open online voting among 50 finalists from leading universities and research centers around the globe.
She based the artwork on research with MXenes, a large family of 2-D transition metal carbides and nitrides, synthesized and studied in Mochalin’s research group. This is the first time an S&T student won first place in this popular and competitive contest, in which young researchers demonstrate their skills in communicating science to society through art.
