Three U-M researchers chosen Cottrell Scholars
ANN ARBOR—Three University of Michigan professors, whose fields include chemistry and astronomy, have been named 2019 Cottrell Scholars by the Research Corporation for Science Advancement, a foundation dedicated to science.
Each of the 24 recipients is identified as a leader in integrating science teaching and research at a top U.S. research university or a primarily undergraduate institution and is also awarded $100,000.
The winners are:
- Charles C. L. McCrory, assistant professor of chemistry, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, for Selective Electrocatalysis by Polymer-Encapsulated Catalysts: The Role of Charge and Substrate Transport on Catalytic Efficiency
- Alison Narayan, assistant professor of chemistry, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, for Biocatalytic Reactions for Selective, Sustainable Synthesis and Engaging Graduate Student Instructors for Improved Outcomes in Organic Chemistry
- Emily Rauscher, assistant professor of astronomy, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, for Exo-Cartography: Resolving Three-Dimensional Images of Extrasolar Worlds
The Cottrell Scholar program awards early career teacher-scholars in chemistry, physics and astronomy by providing significant discretionary awards for research. The goal is to develop outstanding teacher-scholars who are recognized by their scientific communities for the quality and innovation of their research programs and their academic leadership skills.
