  Advanced Nanomaterials for Energy Research and Applications (ANERA) Seminar Series A message from the organizers: The Advanced Nanomaterials for Energy Research and Applications (ANERA) Seminar Series at Delaware State University represents an integral part of a comprehensive program aiming to enhance the advance materials and nanomaterials focus of our Applied Chemistry graduate program. The program is engaging young scientists in conceptualization and application of materials research. The Seminar Series aims to bring renown materials scientists in the Mid-Atlantic Region to present their contributions in the materials research field and discuss potential collaborative efforts with students and faculty in the Department of Chemistry and other STEM departments at DSU. An NSF sponsored program, ANERA debuts the Seminar Series in March, having scheduled monthly events in Spring and Fall semesters. We are honored to extend a heartfelt invitation to the DSU community and look forward to see you at the ANERA Seminars! Sincerely, The Seminar Organizing Committee Dr. Cherese Winstead-Casson, Dr. Daniela Radu and Dr. Cheng-Yu Lai   Spring 2016: March 1, 2016, 11 A.M.: Dr. Jason Baxter, Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Drexel University (OSCAR building, seminar room, 1st floor).

Project Mission


Pictured are (l-r) the research grant’s co-investigators Cheng-Yu Lai, associate professor of Chemistry, and Dr. Daniela R. Radu, assistant professor of Chemistry, and Dr. Cherese Winstead, chair of the DSU Department of Chemistry and the principal investigator of the grant.

  Our mission is to enhance the graduate program in Applied Chemistry at Delaware State University by focusing the departmental research on discovery and application of advanced functional materials. The project’s research will serve as a model in the area of catalysis in renewable energy applications aiming to substantially increase the number of successful graduate student placement.
