Stanislau Niauzorau – PhD Student
I am a Graduate Research Associate in Advanced Manufacturing Laboratory (supervised by Dr. Bruno Azeredo) at the Polytechnic school, Arizona State University. I received my B.S. in Electronics Engineering (BSUIR), M.S. in Nanomaterials and Nanotechnologies in Electronics both from the Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics (BSUIR). I joined the PhD in Materials Science and Engineering at Arizona State University in August 2017. I did my bachelor thesis on Fabrication of Silicon Nanowires by Metal-Assisted Chemical Etching (supervised by Dr. Vitaly Bondarenko) and my master thesis on Lithium-Ion Batteries Based on Silicon Nanowires (supervised by Dr. Hanna Bandarenka). I am staying extremely excited and motivated about my current research on Nanostructured Metals with intent to exploit its fundamental nanoscale properties into Additive Manufacturing and I strive to bring some level of novelty into the field. Besides, the area of my interests expands towards photonics, plasmonics, bio- and chemical catalysis, sustainable research for water treatment and, ultimately, I am looking towards biomedical research topics with microporous materials.
