Will was recently named the 2017 recipient of AIChE’s Nanoscale Science & Engineering Forum (NSEF) Young Investigator Award. The award recognizes outstanding interdisciplinary research in nanoscience and nanotechnology by engineers or scientists in the early stages of their professional careers (within 10 years of completion of highest degree). The award will be presented at the 2017 AIChE Annual Meeting in Minneapolis in November.
Mark Weidman was selected as the 2017 recipient of the Cornell High-Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) Student Research Paper Prize for his paper Kinetics of the self-assembly of nanocrystal superlattices measured by real-time in situ X-ray scattering, published last year in Nature Materials. Mark will travel to Cornell in June to present his work at the annual CHESS user’s meeting and receive his $1,000 prize. Congratulations Mark!
The Tisdale Lab has added two new members! Wenbi Wu joins us as a PhD student in Physical Chemistry, and Kris Williams joins us as a postdoctoral fellow.
Will was named one of 13 new recipients of the Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award. Criteria for selection include “an independent body of scholarship attained in the early years of their appointment and a demonstrated commitment to education, signaling the promise of continuing outstanding contributions to both research and teaching.” Read the MIT News Story.
