Alumna Dr. Elizabeth Hoffman to Receive 2012 ASM International Silver Medal Award


Materials alumna Dr. Elizabeth Hoffman (MSE B.S. 2002, Ph.D. 2007; advisors:  Michel Barsoum and Yury Gogotsi) has been named one of two recipients of the 2012 ASM International Silver Medal Award.  Hoffman has been cited “for exemplary leadership and service to ASM International at the local chapter and national level, and as an exemplary promoter of materials forums and networks for the new materials profession."  The award will be presented at ASM International's Annual Awards Dinner, Tuesday, October 9th, in Pittsburgh, PA as part of the Materials Science and Technology 2012 Conference and Exhibition

Hoffman serves as a senior engineer at  Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL), leading research in a broad range of materials performance and degradation programs including corrosion of nuclear waste tanks, lifetime evaluation of elastomers, radiation damage of ternary carbides, and formation of metallic whiskers.  In addition to her personal research, she manages SRNL's Laboratory Directed Research and Development Program.  She  served ASM  International's Philadelphia Liberty Bell Chapter as Young Member Chair while in graduate school and has served the Savannah River Chapter in several executive committee functions, including Chapter Chair. 

According to ASM International, "established in 2010, the honor of Silver Medal of the Society, is to provide recognition to members who are in mid-career positions (typically, 5 to 15 years of experience) for distinguished contributions in the field of materials science & engineering, and the Society. The purpose of this award is to recognize leadership at an early stage and encourage individuals to grow, nurture and further contribute to the growth of the profession as well as the Society."
