Electrical Engineering Graduate Student Wins Prestigious Fellowship

Electrical Engineering Graduate Student Wins Prestigious Fellowship

Jonathan H. Dang, a UH Mānoa electrical engineering graduate student, has been named the 2014-15 recipient of the IEEE Life Members Graduate Study Fellowship in Electrical Engineering. Established in 2000, this prestigious award is given annually to one first-year, full-time graduate student in electrical engineering worldwide. The award carries a stipend of $10,000 per year, and is renewable for a second year.

Currently a first-year graduate student in UH Mānoa’s MS electrical engineering program, Dang’s research involves the development of liquid-metal circuits and components. Structures based on liquid metal have the potential to be a game changer, extending the realm of current 3D printing technology (configurable, but not re-configurable) to shape-shifting 3D structures reminiscent of the futuristic cyborg in Terminator 2. Dang’s research is a stepping stone in that direction, as it proposes moving metal at will in 2D.
