Organizational Setting

The Columbia PAQM MRSEC is centered at Columbia University, and partners with City College of New York, Howard University, Harvard University and Stony Brook University. PAQM currently includes 21 PIs, 7 of which come from outside of Columbia University. PAQM leadership includes an Executive Committee, made up of MRSEC PIs, and a Student Leadership Committee, comprised of MRSEC graduate students and postdocs.

 

The Columbia University MRSEC is managed by Director James Hone with the support of Associate Director Colin Nuckolls. The Executive Committee is advised by the External Advisory Board which consists of members from industry, academia, and national labs. 

PAQM's two IRGs are comprised of PIs from Columbia University and PAQM's sub-awardees, including City College of New York, Howard University, Harvard University and Stony Brook University.

A student leadership committee comprising postdocs and graduate students helps to organize major MRSEC activities and sets priorities for educational programs for MRSEC participants. The student leadership committee advises the executive committee on educational priorities for PhD/postdoc participants, organizes social events to build coherence among center participation, and aids in organization of center programs and events.
