Fourth-year Ph.D. student Amanda Wang received a Young Researcher Paper Award for her invited talk at the 5th International Workshop on Gallium Oxide and Related Materials (IWGO), held May 25-31 in Berlin, Germany.

A member of the Kioupakis Research Group, Wang presented "Mobility in SnO2, GeO2, and GexSn1-xO2 from first principles."

 "Amanda's contributed submission was reviewed very well during the selection process, and it was promoted to an invited talk, which is already a special distinction," commented her advisor, Manos Kioupakis.

A total of 219 participants from 24 countries attended IWGO 2024, which brought together scientists and engineers working on all aspects of materials and device technology. Program topics ranged from processing to theory/modelling, including characterization, polymorphism, bulk growth, and devices.

Congratulations, Amanda!
