Ravishankar Sundararaman, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, recently received the AIME Robert Lansing Hardy Award, in recognition of his career success and promise. Specifically, the award recognized "seminal contributions to transmute and harness quantum electronic structure calculations for computational materials design in diverse fields of materials research including electrochemistry and plasmonics."
Pawel Keblinski, the head of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has been elected a fellow of the Materials Research Society (MRS). He receives this honor for his influential contributions to “the development of computational methods leading to fundamental understanding of thermal transport in materials on nanometer length scales.”
