Abby Carbone has been named the 2019 Student Commencement Speaker. She’s graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Materials Science and Engineering and a minor in Nanotechnology. Abby has been an excellent addition to our facility and we’re excited to see her give her speech! There is a live stream link that will be provided closer to the commencement date (December 19).
Abby has contributed to AIF in two main ways: working with the electron microscopes and outreach. She’s in the process of imaging samples for external customers, which will be a significant focus of her job next semester. She’s also given tours of the AIF to important visitors, represented the AIF at a southeastern nanofacility conference at Oak Ridge, and conducted science outreach demonstrations for students at the AIF.
