Erickson Lab undergrads in the HI-Light project receive “Bill Nye '77 Award in Undergrad Research” from Cornell Engineering
Tao Hong (MSE '19) and Tingwei Liu (MAE '19), two undergraduate research assistants working in the Erickson Lab, recently received the “Bill Nye '77 Award in Undergrad Research” through the Engineering Learning Initiatives at Cornell Engineering!
Tao and Tingwei joined the Erickson lab in March 2019, and has since been working on the HI-Light project, under the guidance of Xiangkun (Elvis) Cao, a Ph.D. candidate in the Erickson Lab. The title for their awarded proposal is “Engineering the Glass Waveguide Surface for Uniform Light Refraction inside An Optofluidic Photoreactor.” The project seeks to achieve a kind of artificial photosynthesis inside a factory or a power plant – combining sunlight, CO2 and chemicals to photocatalytically produce renewable fuels.
