2022 MRS Spring Meeting Onsite Blogger - Shubham Tanwar

Aloha! I am Shubham Tanwar (my colleagues call me Shubhi). I will share my onsite experience at the 2022 MRS Spring Meeting and Exhibit in Honolulu, Hawaii as an official blogger for MRS Meeting Scene. Super excited about the opportunity and looking forward to blogging about scientific talks, posters, and the unique Hawaiian experience.

Currently, I am a Ph.D. student at IBEC Barcelona and a Marie-Curie Early Stage Researcher in the BORGES (Biosensing with ORGanic ElectronicS) project. I am developing advanced characterization methods for electronic biosensing platforms that provide access to multiscale and multimodal information in working devices. I am participating in the SB01 symposium session on "Organic Electronics - Multimodal Characterization and Computation-Driven Material Design and Performance".

I will be covering a broad range of characterization techniques and exciting developments pushing the field of Organic Bioelectronics forward in general, emphasizing new exciting materials and approaches. I will also post personal opinions and interviews with other researchers.

Feel free to reach out to me over Twitter (@shubhamtanwarIN) or email (stanwar[AT]ibecbarcelona[DOT]eu), and let's talk about science from the Paradise of the Pacific!


Bio and Introduction

Hello my name is Matthew Nakamura and I am currently a PhD student studying mechanical engineering at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where I completed both my bachelors (2020) and masters (2021) as a member of the accelerated masters program. I work jointly between the University of Hawaii Applied Research Laboratory and the Nanosystems Lab, which is under the supervision Assistant Professor Dr. Joseph J. Brown. I have worked with both labs since October of 2018, primarily developing sensor platforms to perform monitoring/characterization of materials and environmental conditions. My interests include sensors systems, material characterization, micro/nanoscale technology, electromechanical system design, low-cost manufacturing, and tunable materials.

MRS launches the 2022 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit - a hybrid event! #s22mrs

S22 Preview Article Image_1The hybrid meeting format provides two distinct options for attendees, one in Honolulu, Hawai‛i, May 8-13, 2022, for those comfortable with and able to travel, and one online May 23-25, 2022, for those who prefer a virtual meeting.

The Honolulu experience (May 8-13) will include in-person opportunities to hear leading-edge science, meet with colleagues, and explore a robust exhibit hall. Select content from the in-person meeting will be live streamed to the virtual audience the week of May 8, and in-person meeting attendees will also enjoy access to the full virtual experience the week of May 23.

The virtual experience (May 23-25) will bring exceptional meeting content to attendees worldwide with live online, pre-recorded, and on-demand scientific sessions. Virtual attendees will also be able to view live streams of select featured talks and sessions from the Honolulu experience during the week of May 8.

No matter how you attend, the 2022 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit will continue to showcase leading-edge materials research in both fundamental and applied areas, with nine topical clusters:

  • characterization
  • materials computation and data
  • energy and sustainability
  • electronics, optics and photonics
  • manufacturing
  • nanomaterials
  • quantum
  • biomaterials and soft materials
  • structural and functional materials

In an effort to share and discuss research across the Pacific Rim, provide networking opportunities across communities, and grow a higher level of support and awareness for materials research and innovation, the Materials Research Society is holding several collaborative events, including joint symposia and other events, with materials societies from Japan, South Korea, and Singapore:

  • Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP)
  • The Korean Institute of Metals and Materials (KIM)
  • MRS-Korea
  • MRS-Singapore
  • The Polymer Society of Korea (PSK)
