Dr. Yuning Guo (Project A01) awarded the 42nd Hunt Fellow in Acoustics
The Acoustical Society of America has selected Dr. Yuning Guo of the University of Konstanz as its 2018-2019 Frederick V. Hunt Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Acoustics. With her successful research proposal “Terahertz coherent phonons in thermal conduction modulation” she will help advance research in the field of physical acoustics by providing useful insights into how to manipulate heat in non-metallic materials. The postdoctoral research fellowship, established in 1978 to fulfill Professor Frederick V. Hunt’s wish that his estate be used to advance both science and education in acoustics, is awarded annually to one postdoctoral researcher. As the 42nd Hunt Fellow, Dr. Guo will receive a research stipend in excess of EUR 40,000 and will carry out her research project at the University of Colorado Boulder, USA in collaboration with Professor Baowen Li, a pioneer in the field of phononics.
