Christian Mantilla (’13) receives the Provost Undergraduate Research Award for his proposal titled, “Electrochemically Fabricated Ni-W-Mo Alloy Thin Films”. His research involves exploring the unique co-deposition of Mo and W alloys, useful as catalysts for renewable energy generation. The alloys accelerate water splitting to produce hydrogen fuel. Christian was mentored by Professor Elizabeth Podlaha-Murphy of the Chemical Engineering Department.
Congratulations to Christian from the Chair, Faculty and Staff of the Chemical Engineering Department.
