Featured Content: Congratulations to Diana for her fellowship!

Congratulations to Diana Gulyas Oldal for her fellowship award! Diana has been awarded the highly competitive KAUST Discovery Doctoral Fellowship to pursue her PhD studies in chemical engineering. Diana is among a few outstanding students who have won the fellowship and who have successfully passed a rigorous selection process involving international peer review. She will be working on the development of entirely green and biodegradable nanofibrous membranes for oil/water separation. Well done, Diana!
