AI Design Meets Energy
May 21, 2021Congratulations to 2020 Texas A&M chemistry Ph.D. graduate and postdoctoral research associate Rachel Davidson '19, recipient of a 2021 Intelligence Community Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in support of her work toward artificial intelligence-driven design of energy materials.
May 05, 2021A multidisciplinary team of researchers led by Texas A&M chemist Karen Wooley and Texas A&M chemical engineer Jodie Lutkenhaus has developed a new metal-free battery platform that could lead to more sustainable, recyclable batteries that minimize dependence on strategic metals.
May 04, 2021Sophomore physics major Connor Bowerman '24 has been selected as one of two 2021-22 Texas A&M Beckman Scholars, a prestigious award intended to recognize and support exceptional undergraduate students in chemistry, biological sciences or interdisciplinary combinations thereof at selected universities across the United States.
First Light for TOROS
Apr 29, 2021Astronomers from Texas to Argentina recently celebrated a critical milestone in their nearly decade-long project to search for and measure the electromagnetic evidence of gravitational waves throughout the cosmos — "first light" for the Transient Optical Robotic Observatory of the South (TOROS) telescope in northwestern Argentina, which recorded its first images on April 10.
Apr 19, 2021Texas A&M sophomore chemistry major Brianna Bishop '23 and junior biology major Ryan Rahman ’22 have been named 2021 Goldwater Scholars by the Goldwater Scholarship Foundation in recognition of outstanding academic achievement and research potential. Bishop and Rahman are among 52 Texas A&M students selected to date for the prestigious honor since the initial scholarship was issued in 1989.
Mar 31, 2021Texas A&M mathematician Grigoris Paouris is one of 39 mathematicians and five physicists across the U.S. and Canada selected to receive 2021 Simons Foundation fellowships, a coveted award intended to support distinguished scientists in their research pursuits.
Vision QuestTexas A&M marine biology graduate student Maureen Hayden '21 has always had her sights set on a career as a scientist, one of the few things she was able to see clearly prior to being gifted a pair of Acesight electronic glasses that have helped bring her research on plastic pollution — along with her goal of being an example to others with disabilities — into full focus.
Making a Difference
Mar 18, 2021Texas A&M chemistry graduate student Jaime Ayala '22 is one of nine inaugural recipients of the U.S. Department of Energy Building Technologies Office Innovation in Buildings (IBUILD) Graduate Research Fellowship supporting innovative research toward more energy-efficient buildings.
Mar 05, 2021Texas A&M biologist Dylan McCreedy has been named a Scialog Fellow along with Texas A&M biomedical engineer Alexandra Walsh for a new bioimaging initiative involving more than 50 promising early-career scientists set to take on the challenges involved in enhancing high-resolution imaging of tissues to support basic science and disease treatment.
Feb 28, 2021A team of Texas A&M Physics and Astronomy researchers analyzed both the midterm exam scores and final grades of more than 10,000 students enrolled in four introductory physics courses at Texas A&M across more than a decade, finding no evidence that male students consistently outperform female students in these courses.
To Boldly Build
Feb 26, 2021A new Texas A&M-developed technique that allows for the creation of building materials using local soils could prove key not only to the success of future space missions to the Moon and Mars, but also in establishing a solid and safe foothold on both, thanks to a 2021 NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts grant awarded to a team led by Texas A&M chemist and NASA NIAC Fellow Sarbajit Banerjee.
