Jessica Schiffman Receives Most Likely to Enhance Drexel's Reputation Doctoral Award

Graduating Ph.D. student Jessica Schiffman (advisor:  Caroline Schauer) has been selected as the doctoral student deemed to have the most promise in enhancing Drexel’s reputation in the future in the Mathematical Sciences and Engineering.  This award for graduating Ph.D. students is given to only one or two graduating students per category per year.

Jessica will pursue her postdoctoral studies at Yale University beginning in August with Professor Menachem Elimelech, chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering and director of the Environmental Engineering program.

This is the fourth year in a row a graduating Ph.D. student from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering has been selected to receive this award.  Previous award winners from MSE include Davide Matthia (2008), María Pía Rossi (2007), and Ranjan Dash (2006), all advised by Professor Yury Gogotsi.

Previous winners of the Best Dissertation Award include Aiguo Zhou in 2008 (advisor:  Michel Barsoum) and Thomas Juliano in 2005 (advisor:  Yury Gogotsi).

Jessica will receive her award at the Hooding Ceremony on June 12, 2009 and will be recognized at Commencement on June 13, 2009.
