May named Presidential Fellow
Brelon May is one of four Buckeye engineers who have been recognized as Presidential Fellows, the most prestigious award given by The Ohio State University Graduate School.
Presidential Fellowships honor the outstanding scholarly accomplishments and potential of graduate students entering the final phase of their dissertation research or terminal degree project.
May is currently pursuing a PhD in materials science and engineering under the advisement of Professor Roberto Myers. His work focuses on integrating deep-ultraviolet (DUV) nanowire light-emitting diode (LED) technology onto metal foils. The technology has numerous practical applications, including decontamination of water, disinfection of surfaces and medical diagnostics. Compared to current industry standards, the innovation is more energy-efficient, portable and economical, and contains no toxic materials.
