Serena Eley, assistant professor of physics at Colorado School of Mines, has been honored with the 2021 Joseph A. Johnson III Award for Excellence from the American Institute of Physics and the National Society of Black Physicists.
The class, which focuses on sustainable development and earth resources, was selected by SDSN as a case study for integrating the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into resource engineering education.
A new $15 million interdisciplinary research institute led by Colorado School of Mines aims to create new theoretically grounded and experimentally validated approaches and tools to design and discover dynamical materials and structures while solving long-standing scientific challenges in the dynamical response of materials.
“For Mines to win the medal count really cements our position in this industry,” Professor George Sowers said. “The team that won the overall prize was a pretty large aerospace corporation – we had graduate students that went toe to toe with a professional company.”
