Sustainable Hierarchically Structured Thermal Insulator 

Hometown: Pittsburgh, Virginia

Department: Applied Science

Advisor: Hannes Schniepp

 

Many marine microorganisms exhibit complex silica skeletal configurations that have hierarchical structures (geometries at multiple length scales from nano- to macro-). These structures have the potential to create incredible thermal insulators. The goal of this project is to create a material from a naturally occurring, sustainable source that can be used commercially to prevent energy waste and improve thermal efficiency
