Pinshane Huang ’14 receives 2017 Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering
AEP Alumna Pinshane Huang is one of 18 researchers nation-wide to receive a 2017 Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering. The Packard Fellowships are among the nation’s largest nongovernmental fellowships, designed to allow maximum flexibility in how the funding is used. Each recipient will receive $875,000 over five years to pursue their research.
Huang was member of the David Muller Group. She received her MS in 2012 and her Ph.D. in 2014. She is currently Assistant Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Huang’s research develops techniques that use electron microscopes to characterize matter with single atom precision, with the ultimate goal of enabling an era in which materials can be designed and perfected at the level of individual atoms.
