Imaging the atomic details of materials as they function, forming microfluidic structures to study plants and animals, and new techniques for manufacturing polymer nanomaterials are among some of the research themes that helped six faculty members earn Cornell Engineering Research Excellence Awards – the highest research honor given by the Ivy League’s top-ranked engineering college.
The awards were presented at the Engineering Faculty Reception and Meeting held on Dec. 6.
Recipients of the annual awards are nominated by their departments and selected by a committee for more than just their individual research outcomes. Awardees are also recognized for their impacts on society, reputation in the field, leadership, mentorship and citizenship within the college and university.
“At the forefront of academic excellence, this year's award recipients exemplify a spirit of collaborative leadership and elevate Cornell Engineering’s standard of research,” said Lois Pollack, associate dean for research and graduate studies at Cornell Engineering. “We proudly acknowledge and celebrate their impact on our academic community and on the broader realm of science and engineering.”
