FSU Graduate Student Received NSF-EAPSI Award



The NSF East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) are fellowships awarded to U.S. graduate students in the STEM areas to perform collaborative research at overseas university or institution. Jeremy Hrudka, the 3rd-year graduate student in the FSU Chemistry & Biochemistry program, received the NSF-EAPSI award to fund his work in the labs of Prof. Sally Brooker at University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. Activities described in Jeremy’s NSF-EAPSI proposal are directly related to his Ph.D. research carried out under supervision of Prof. Shatruk in the area of inorganic magnetic materials. The 6-month visit to the Brooker labs aims to establish collaboration between the FSU and Otago groups to study the structure-property relationship between magnetic switching and conductivity in Fe(II) complexes. Ultimately, this research aims to further development in memory and sensor devices at the molecular level, leading to new technologies in data storage. More information about the project on spin-crossover and multifunctional materials can be found on the Shatruk group website.
