The Center for Emergent Materials engages researchers from multiple disciplines to work in teams on scientific problems too complex for a single researcher to solve. The CEM, established in 2008, is located at The Ohio State University and funded by a National Science Foundation MRSEC award.
President Obama Honors Extraordinary Early-Career Scientists including CEM Participant Sayeef Salahuddin
March 34, 2016
President Obama named 105 researchers as recipients of the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor bestowed by the United States Government on science and engineering professionals in the early stages of their independent research careers. The winners will receive their awards at a Washington, DC ceremony this spring. The awards, established by President Clinton in 1996, are coordinated by the Office of Science and Technology Policy within the Executive Office of the President. Awardees are selected for their pursuit of innovative research at the frontiers of science and technology and their commitment to community service as demonstrated through scientific leadership, public education, or community outreach.
Dr. Sayeef Salahuddin joined the faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley in 2008. His research interests are in the interdisciplinary field of electronic transport in nanostructures currently focusing on novel electronic and spintronic devices for low power logic and memory applications.
Dr. Jessica Winter Named Design News’ Rising Engineering Star
“Her research may occur at the nanoscale,
but her impact will soon be felt on a global scale.”
Associate Director Dr. Jessica Winter was recently named Design News’ annual Rising Engineering Star at the Golden Mousetrap Awards in Anaheim, California.
Winter was nominated by Matt Schutte, director of communications & engineering healthcare solutions at Ohio State’s College of Engineering. When asked about his decision to nominate Winter, he was quoted as saying she“epitomizes the growing trend of engineers applying their skills to solve healthcare challenges. As a cancer survivor herself, she approaches her research with urgency and empathy, and with a focus on translation — on taking knowledge from the bench to the bedside. Jessica is much more than a professor, she is an entrepreneur, a mentor to dozens of students, an enthusiastic Ohio State engineering ambassador, and a productively impatient researcher who knows she can make a difference.”
