Work in the Varanasi Group has been highlighted in a special report in the Economist. The article also mentions MIT’s Biomolecular Materials Group.
Work on hydrate-phobic surfaces has led to articles in two promininent newspapers. The work is led by Dave Smith.
Team LiquidGlide has advanced to semifinal round of the MIT 100K competition. The team is composed of lab members Rajeev Dhiman, Dave Smith, Adam Paxson, Chris Love, and Brian Solomon and plans to demonstrate the commercial feasibility of a novel nano-engineered coating.
