Will Tisdale is the recipient of a 2014 award from the Solomon Buchsbaum Research Fund. The $75,000 awards, administered by MIT’s Office of the Provost, are awarded annually to young faculty at MIT to support “innovative ideas and new research initiatives that cut across disciplinary lines.” The award will support the development of a novel microscopy technique for visualizing transport processes at the nanoscale.
Lisa Poulikakos won the Nature Publishing Group Poster Prize at QD2014 in Pisa, Italy, for her poster titled “Transition from Thermodynamic to Kinetic-Limited Excitonic Energy Migration in Colloidal Quantum Dot Solids.” Lisa is pictured below with Fabio Pulizzi, Chief Editor at Nature Nanotechnology. Her paper was published in J. Phys. Chem. C. Congratulations, Lisa!
Will is this year’s recipient of the Everett Moore Baker Memorial Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching. The Institute-wide award is given annually to an MIT faculty member in recognition of “exceptional interest and ability in the instruction of undergraduates.” It is the only teaching award in which the nomination and selection of the recipients is done entirely by the students.
