Stapelmann wins the 2021-22 NC State Goodnight Early Career Innovators Award

Congratulations to Dr. Katharina Stapelmann, recipient of the 2021-22 Goodnight Early Career Innovators Award. Stapelmann is an assistant professor in nuclear engineering who studies the interactions of technical plasmas with biological systems on a macromolecular level. 

Her focus is on the characterization and optimization of plasma discharges used for biomedical applications and the understanding and improvement of plasmas used e.g., in medicine. Applications range from wound healing to air purification, sterilization of medical instruments as well as for planetary protection purposes. Furthermore, plasma-liquid interactions and plasma discharges in liquids belong to the repertoire.
