Posted on Tuesday, November 19, 2013
Kenneth Lyons, Jr., a recent two-year ARCS Foundation Atlanta Scholar at Morehouse College and a second-year graduate student in the Material Science and Engineering (MSE) Ph.D. program at Cornell University, was recently singled out as Student of the Month.
 
A chemist by training, his research focuses on the self assembly of photonic structures from colloidal, polymer particles. Though unsure of his specific plans following the five-year program in Ithaca, New York, Lyons does hope to embark on a career in science with the ultimate goal of becoming a NASA astronaut.
