Kobi Felton lived all over the world before finding a home at NC State, where he conducted research on semiconductor nanocrystals that could lead to more energy-efficient technology. Now he’s taking his passion for scientific innovation in light-absorbing nanomaterials to the UK. There he will earn master’s degrees in chemical engineering and biotechnology and in nanomaterials, thanks to a prestigious Marshall Scholarship.
