On-Site Speaker (Planned) Timothy Smith
Abstract Scope The on-going Covid-19 pandemic has brought many significant challenges to nearly all aspects of life. These challenges extend to the field of materials science. With labs closing, supply chains impacted, and travel all but non-existent, many material science studies were severely affected. Still, with these difficulties came new opportunities to modernize how research is performed. Advances in communication and computing power now allow for complex tools such as electron microscopes to be operated virtually from home and with minimal in-person interaction. In addition, sample preparation and optical microscopy characterization can be automated. These advances have allowed for research to progress despite the restrictions. Lastly, this past year has revealed the importance of collaboration and cooperation to improve the quality of research moving forward.
