2017 Research Fair

The 2017 Graduate Student Poster Session, a celebration highlighting graduate student research and creative activity, was held on April 5, 2017 as part of the campus-wide 2017 UNL Spring Research Fair. The purpose of this yearly event is to give students the opportunity to showcase their research or creative activity; to communicate their results to other students, faculty and staff; and to learn about other areas of research and creative activity. Twelve posters related to Energy Center projects were exhibited at the event.  Dr. Michael Nastasi, Director of the Nebraska Center for Energy Sciences Research, and Alan Dostal , Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) congratulated the students.  (NPPD is a collaborator with the Energy Center). The Research Fair is sponsored by the Office of Research and Economic Development and the Office of Graduate Studies. 2017 UNL Research Fair Composite – all energy center participants
