Sorption Insight into the Application of Nanoporous Networks

Recent materials syntheses are yielding increasingly complex nanoporous solid networks for application as sorbents/separations and catalysts. Johns Hopkins was a pioneer in the use of physical adsorption to analyze porous solids (B.E.T. in 1932). How should our studies of the current nanoporous solid networks be extended to use sorption and its dynamics to understand the nature and implications of these networks? This presentation will discuss changes in sorption due to the networks and the interpretation of isotherms for N2 or Ar and ongoing related 15N2 NMR studies. This presentation will discuss the ongoing developments in physical sorption and related, in situ spectroscopic analyses.

Venture Through the Unknown: My Journey to Entrepreneurship

Being an entrepreneur is a journey that begins way before one starts a business. On paper, I was the least likely person to become one. However, the journey began the moment I stepped on my first flight from Beijing to Baltimore to become a PhD student at JHU. I would like to share with you my experiences along the path from a graduate student dreaming of becoming a scientist to eventually founding and running a technology company. My journey to entrepreneurship was filled with constant venture through unknowns, whether in life, career, technology, or business.
