NDnano Grad Student-Postdoc Group

NDnano seeks to build community across research disciplines in science and engineering to help solve the world's technical challenges and to develop the students of today to meet the demands of tomorrow. The NDnano Graduate Student and Post-Doc group brings together students to share ideas, make connections, and develop an interdisciplinary approach to solving problems. The group is student led and has 6 - 8 meetings per year, where students share their research, discuss obstacles, and hear from experts both within and outside the Notre Dame community. There are also social events like coffee breaks to give students from across the campus an opportunity to get to know each other.

"A Conversation with Dr. Christos Karanikas, Global Chemical Engineering Director at Nike"

Thursday, April 29 • 1:00 pm

Nike’s Global Chemical Engineering Director, Chris Karanikas, will tell his story about what it takes to become head of the chemical engineering department at the world’s largest footwear and apparel brand.  Classically trained as a chemical engineer with interest in polymers and materials as well as a desire to fuse science and business, Chris obtained his BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh, his PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts and an MBA from the State University of New York, University at Albany. He will tell how engineering and materials took him from his first job in the plastics industry to his role as a lithography engineer in the semiconductor industry and ultimately how it landed him in fast fashion at Nike.
