I was thrilled to receive the notification this week that I was selected to receive funding for the Engineering Learning Initiatives Grant here at Cornell for the summer of 2016! This will allow me to devote myself full time to working on electrorotation of algae cells this summer. The project is a new area of application very different from the original cancer cell subjects of our electrorotation studies. Our results could give us an interesting view into the optimizing the efficiency of algal biofuels in the future. I am looking forward to the new experience!
