  • Deans' InSPIRe Extended to 2021--Seed Program Allows Free Access

    STEM faculty in the Davis, Eberly, and Statler colleges will be able to access Shared Research Facilities instrumentation for free to conduct seed research through January 31, 2021. The deans of the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, Eberly College of Arts and Sciences, and Statler College of Engineering have agreed to continue providing financial support for the Deans’ Instrumentation Seed Program for Innovative Research for another year. The WVU Research Office is matching the deans’ funds $1 for $1.

  • CORES no more: SRF to launch iLab Solutions management this summer

    SRF will begin migrating from CORES to the iLab Solutions management system beginning in early June. CORES new owner, Agilent Crosslab, is no longer supporting CORES, replacing it with iLab Solutions. SRF will be migrating its for 'cores' or facilities in three waves.

Researcher Spotlight

Meet Maria.

I am Maria TorresArango, Ph.D. student in Materials Science and Engineering. I am interested in creating solutions for sustainability and smart living. My research focuses on nano materials for energy harvesting and recovery, solar cell devices, and thermo-electric materials. I use non-toxic and water-compatible materials to ensure the highest levels of safety from the laboratory scale, to the processing stage, to the user, to the environment when the device is disposed of or recycled. I consider research to be of paramount importance. In industry or academia, research is that common place where fundamentals meet applications for actual solutions to engineering problems, and I am excited to be part of it.
