Report on 2011 Industrial &Engineering Chemistry Graduate Student Award Symposium, ACS National Meeting, Denver CO., August, 2011
The inaugural Graduate Student Award Symposium was a great success! A total of eighteen students were in Denver to present their work. Although it was a close call for a couple of the participants, everyone managed to adjust travel plans so as not to be deterred by Hurricane Irene. One student even came to the ACS meeting direct from another conference in Spain!
The winners were: Darci Trader, Indiana University Department of Chemistry, First Place for her paper “Development of Reversible Enrichment Tags for Natural Product Discovery”, Michael Clark, Columbia University Department of Chemical Engineering, Second Place for his paper “Focusing Nanocrystal Size Distributions via Production Control”, and Stacey Smith, Brigham Young University Department of Chemistry, Third Place for her paper “Revised Mechanism of Stabilization for La-doped ϒ-Al2O3 Catalyst Supports.”
Six I&EC members participated in the judging, which encompassed evaluation of students’ written mini-papers as well as the oral presentations. Judges and presenters agreed that the quality of the work and that of the presentations themselves was very high. This group has set a very high bar for subsequent Graduate Student Symposia.
Symposium Organizer Mike Matthews wishes to thank all I&EC Members who helped with organization and judging: Mary Moore (Program Chair), John Engelman, George Stanley, Mike Gonzalez, Melanie Lesko, and Phil Savage (2011 Division Chair). All photos courtesy of Prof. George Stanley of LSU.
