The winner of the 2016 Roger Taylor award is Dr. Ardemis A. Boghossian who is currently an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Chemical Sciences and Engineering (ISIC) of the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). Dr. Boghossian received her BSE in Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. She holds a PhD in Chemical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and served as a Postdoc in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology.
Currently, Dr. Boghossian implements an interdisciplinary approach to addressing fundamental challenges and developing novel technologies that exploit the synergy between nanotechnology and synthetic biology. The award consists of a certificate and a £750 prize. Join us at the 229th ECS biannual meeting in San Diego where she will deliver Wrapped Up in Nanotubes: Dynamics of Wrapped Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNTs) within the B Symposia: Carbon Nanostructures and Devices.
