Graduate Student (Penn State)
Tao Wang is an early-career graduate student in the Penn State Physics Department who is developing expertise in materials computation to support EFree efforts on nanothreads and beyond. She graduated from Dalian University of Technology (DUT) in China with a B.S. in applied physics in 2011. Her thesis was on the preparation, separation and microwave absorption of carbon nanocoils. She then focused on the synthesis and investigations of the physical properties of organic thin films in the department of physics at University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) and got her M.S. in 2013. She is now a first-year graduate student working with Vincent Crespi in the Penn State Physics department.
