The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry welcomes Jose Rodriguez who has joined the department as an Assistant Professor in the Biochemistry Division. Prof. Rodriguez joined the department in July 2016 and currently holds the Howard Reiss Development Chair.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has named 2,000 individuals as this year’s recipients of awards from the Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP).
“The Graduate Research Fellowship Program is a vital part of our efforts to foster and promote excellence in U.S. science, technology, engineering and mathematics by recognizing talent broadly from across the nation,” said Joan Ferrini-Mundy, NSF assistant director for Education and Human Resources. “These awards are provided to individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements, and they are investments that will help propel this country’s future innovations and economic growth.”
National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowships are awarded to applicants who will pursue a doctoral degree in, or closely related to, an area of DoD interest.
On January 10, 2017 UCLA’s postdoctoral scholars were honored for their important contributions to the university’s interrelated missions of research, teaching, and public service at the 2017 Postdoctoral Scholars Reception & Awards Ceremony at UCLA’s California NanoSystems Institute. The 2017 Chancellor’s Awards for Postdoctoral Research were also presented that same day. Of the 1,314 postdoctoral scholars, 18 were nominated for this prestigious award that recognizes individual research accomplishments that show clear potential to have meaningful and enduring implications in their field.
Congrats to University of Colorado graduate student Elisabeth Shanblatt for winning the Best Paper Award at the International Conference on Computational Imaging
The field of Computational Photography seeks to create new photographic functionalities and experiences that go beyond what is possible with traditional cameras and image processing tools. The IEEE International Conference on Computational Photography is organized with the vision of fostering the community of researchers, from many different disciplines, working on computational photography.
Awarded “…for his pioneering advances in detectors for electron and X-ray microscopy, especially the development of complementary metal oxide semiconductor detectors for electron microscopy, and column parallel readout charge coupled devices for ptychographic X-ray microscope.”
Five UCLA faculty members have been elected Fellows of the American Physical Society for its class of 2016. Recipients are nominated by professional peers and selected by the Society. The honor recognizes “exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise,” such as outstanding physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics and significant contributions to physics education.
Education pathways have grown increasingly complex in recent decades and today are characterized by a multitude of entry points, stops and starts, longer times to degrees, and changing career directions. As a result, the STEM “pipeline” metaphor has become outdated, and the current institutional structures are not well suited to meeting the educational needs of today’s students.
Congrats to Ryan Haaland for securing $300K at Fort Lewis College to educate physics and engineers in startups
Ryan Haaland is the chair and a professor of Physics and Engineering at Fort Lewis College. He joined the college in 2006 and has served as department chair since 2010. Dr. Haaland conducts research in upper atmospheric electricity, physics education and space situational awareness. For over a decade, he has studied high-speed optical measurements of electrical discharge phenomena in the upper atmosphere.
