Ravi Hadimani, Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was awarded the International Young Scientist Fellowship by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). Hadimani will receive funding to travel to China and conduct research at the State Key Laboratory of Electronic Thin Films and Integrated Devices, and the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China.
“I’m excited to start collaborative work with State Key Laboraties of Thin Films,” Hadimani said. “I am honored to have received this award and thankful to the NSFC for this opportunity.”
Hadimani will make at least two trips to Chengdu, China this year, and will collaborate with Mangui Han, who earned a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Iowa State in 2004. Both Hadimani and Han have the distinction of working under David C. Jiles, Anson Marston Distinguished Professor and Palmer Endowed Department Chair of ECpE at Iowa State.
“We worked on some of the same materials under Dr. Jiles, just at different times, and now we’ll be working together on exciting new materials,” Hadimani said. “It’s interesting how it works out sometimes.”
Hadimani and Han’s project “High frequency permeability and permittivity of magnetic thin film with unusual phase transitions” will begin in April. Hadimani also will present a series of seminars as part of the project.
