The REEMS Programme: discovering untapped talent

Mr Sheinberg’s current research objectives focus on identifying, educating and serving as the Principal Investigator for students involved in Houston Community College’s REEMS programme.

To many, materials science represents a fairly inaccessible, complicated topic of science requiring a highly academic approach. Mr Bartlett Sheinberg’s Research Experiences and Exploration in Materials Science (REEMS) Programme aims to overcome this – contextualising materials science for community college students. The programme’s approach also aims to instil confidence in these students and provide them with skills to help them progress […]

Pushing the boundaries – interrogating magnetism at material interfaces

this research article covers Dr Holcomb’s work which focuses on the properties of the boundaries of two materials. These are often very different to the properties of the bulk of the material and Dr Holcomb aims to develop methods for studying the boundaries specifically.

In order to keep improving electronic devices, whether it be computers or sensors, researchers must understand what is going on, on an atomic level. Understanding the behaviour of ions within materials is difficult enough, but when you put two materials together it gets much more complicated. Dr Mikel Holcomb, Associate Professor from West Virginia University, has dedicated her work to finding […]
