Daniel McCurry


5th Year Graduate Student
Home: Edgewater, NJ

Dan examines the development of surface morphology following the corrosion of white gold alloys and applies electrochemical techniques towards the study of molecular transport through nanoporous materials.

Dan is an electronics hobbyist and spends much of his time outside of lab trying to get something to work again after opening it. He also enjoys working on his car, grilling, and camping.
