Tony Rocha-Valadez, MKOPSC PhD student in Chemical Engineering, was chosen as a recipient of the 2012-2013 Texas A&M Energy Institute ConocoPhillips Fellowship award, part of the inaugural class of Texas A&M Energy Institute Fellows. Tony will display a poster of his research at the Water and Energy in Texas: Solutions from Texas A&M conference on October 3-4, 2012 at the Hilton College Station & Conference Center.
Diana Castellanos, MKOPSC PhD student in Material Science, received the Best Paper Award at the 9th ISHPMIE in Krakow, Poland. Diana’s paper “The Effect of Particle Size Polidispersity on the Explosibility Characteristic of Aluminum Dust” was selected as one of the five best papers by the Award Committee. While the committee focused on contributions from early-career researchers, its selections identified papers which were felt to be outstanding among all submissions and deserved recognition because of the quality of their scientific content and the clarity of the presentation.
