Several current members, alumni, and collaborators from the Nanomaterials group attended the Fall MRS meeting in Boston, MA this week. There were many highlights at this year’s meeting, including Ph.D. Candidate, Katie Van Aken, being awarded the MRS Best Poster Award.
Congratulations to all on a great meeting!
This recognition is based on the number of papers that are within the top 1% in the materials science field. This is clearly the result of excellent work of our extremely productive Nanomaterials Group.
Congratulations to Ph.D. Candidate, Boota, who was just awarded the H.H. Dow Memorial Student Achievement Award but the Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division of ECS. Boota will formally receive the award at the 2017 Spring ECS meeting in New Orleans. Congratulations!
