The Arkansas Research Alliance announced that Min Zou, who holds the Twenty-First Century Professorship in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Arkansas, a 2016 fellow for her research and development of nanoscale surfaces like anti-reflective coatings for solar panels, friction-reducing coatings in electronics and coatings that keep skillets slick.

 

Zou is the scientific lead on a new $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation to create a Center for Advanced Surface Engineering. The grant enables the University of Arkansas and nine other state universities to partner with industries and create new products for manufacturing, aerospace, defense, agriculture, oil and gas, food packaging and health care.

 

The other 2016 ARA fellows include Brandon Kemp, associate professor of engineering at Arkansas State University; Michael Owens, professor of pharmacology and toxicology at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences; Jessie Walker, interim coordinator of computer science at the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff; and Cang Ye, professor of systems engineering at the University of Arkansas Little Rock.
