Lab design kick-off meeting!
Renovation plans involve breaking down walls between adjacent rooms, with four smaller labs being combined into two larger ones. This construction project will provide synthetic (257/253, green) and physical instrumentation (264/262, blue) spaces for the incoming Inkpen group at USC. Our research group offices will be next door (251/251, red).
