91: Janus Particles: Linking the Gap Between Industry and Academia (ft. Dr. Shan Jiang)
Watch the full video here:
Every determined student must eventually ask themselves the age-old question: industry or academia? Professor, scientist, engineer, or manager?
In today’s episode we welcome Dr. Shan Jiang, Associate Professor at Iowa State University. He defies this traditional mindset with his rich experience in both industry and academia. He specifically leverages these experiences with Janus particles, a type of nanoparticle that enables two bonded sides with distinctly different chemistries.
🔹️ What a Janus particle is and how it’s different from normal chemistries
🔹 Which field(s) will be most impacted by continued research into Janus particles?
🔹 What the challenges are in applying these particles in real-life applications?
🔹 And much more!
