Multidisciplinarity key to solving today’s problems

Armin VahidMohammadi: Three-time winner of Science as Art

In Materials Connect, blogger Tianyu Liu of Virginia Tech interviews Armin VahidMohammadi of Auburn University about his experience with digital art.It is the third time Armin wins, and he is the only graduate student who achieves this hat trick as the first and leading author of the artwork,” Liu writes, referring to the MRS Science as Art competition. Liu writes:

“Armin, and his brother, Aidin, managed to teach themselves how to work with different 3D software by reading the manuals and instructions of them. ‘Aidin was so passionate in 3D artworks and we always were discussing new things. I am sure we could never do what we can do today without learning and working together,” Armin says.” Read more
