Michael Garcia, a postdoctoral researcher who works jointly with ECE Professors April Brown and Jeff Glass, has won a National Research Council Fellowship from the National Academy of Sciences. The fellowship will provide $56,000 of funding support for Garcia to conduct research at Duke through the Army Research Office over the next year, with the possibility of up to three years of funding. His research will aim to develop a novel nitric oxide sensor, with potential application to medicine, environmental monitoring and defense, using compound semiconductors with enhanced material properties.
