Undergraduate Profile: Peter Wang (TD ’18): A Modern-Day Renaissance Man

Peter Wang is a current senior majoring in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology. While at Yale, he’s done it all—from publishing a paper in ACS Biochemistry to going on a month-long solo journey through Europe.

Harnessing the Sun for Clean Water

Harnessing the Sun for Clean Water

Yale researchers have developed a small-scale, solar-powered water purification system using nanotechnology. The design, created in collaboration with the Nanotechnology Enabled Water Treatment Systems center, is intended to provide clean water in off-grid scenarios, such as rural areas and disaster zones.

Hardware Security “Fingerprints”

Hardware Security “Fingerprints”

Yale Professor Jakub Szefer has received a National Science Foundation award for his project to improve electronic security. The research uses distinctive hardware features, found in our everyday electronic devices, which gives each device a unique “fingerprint” that can be used for authentication purposes.
