Mechanical Engineering Chancellor Award recipient, Jin Woo Lee, discusses undergraduate research

"Participating in undergraduate research was a truly rewarding experience that helped
me develop critical thinking skills and gain a clear understanding of what I should
do for the future. Through the Summer Scholars and Artists program, I was able to
pursue a research project of my interest and apply the theories I learned in classrooms
to a practical application. This past summer, I explored the possibility of sterilizing
medical equipment inside a body by optically heating gold nanoparticles. Micro and
nanotechnology is a relatively new field with many discoveries yet to be uncovered.
Through this experience, I have become fascinated with the potential of using micro and nanotechnology to solve the modern day problems to serve people in need and make a lasting impact in their lives. I not only gained new understandings and concepts outside the classroom but also developed more appreciation for the theories and applications that are taught in classes. The summer experience provided me a clear direction to pursue in future research career. Without the Summer Scholars and Artists program, it would have been hard for me to make the choice to continue on to a graduate school and have a clear goal for the future years."
