Yasser Albarakat, a senior KGSP student at the University of Colorado Boulder, recently completed his thesis and defended his dissertation on ‘Two-Photon Polymerization of Soft Matter Composites’. His thesis summarizes the results of one-and-a-half years of research under the supervision of Ivan Smalyukh, Associate Professor of Physics. Yasser joined the Smalyukh Group in Fall 2015 and received a research grant from the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) at the University of Colorado Boulder during the summer of his junior year.
