Electrical and Computer Engineering graduate student Sangwook Chu has won a best poster award at the University of Maryland’s 2015 Graduate Research Interaction Day, held April 8. His poster, “Biotemplated Hierarchical Nickel Oxide Supercapacitor Electrodes,” took first prize in the Novel Technology to Address Challenges session.

The poster describes Chu’s work in fabrication and characterization hierarchical nickel oxide supercapacitor electrodes utilizing Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) as biological nano-scaffolds.

Chu is associated with ISR Director Reza Ghodssi’s (ECE/ISR) MEMS Sensors and Actuators Laboratory (MSAL).

About Graduate Research Interaction Day
The University of Maryland Graduate Student Government hosts Graduate Research Interaction Day (GRID) each April. GRID provides an on-campus conference-style venue in which graduate students from all academic backgrounds can share their research, obtain valuable faculty and peer feedback, and hone their conference presentation skills within the comfort of their own campus environment. GRID fosters healthy competition among students by recognizing and awarding the best presentations from subject-themed oral and poster presentation sessions.
