Austin Hooey Graduate Research Excellence Award: Fall 2018

Dana and Andrew

The Austin Hooey Graduate Research Excellence Recognition Award is the highest award given to a graduate student. It recognizes outstanding contributions to scholarship and research toward  a Ph.D. and was established in 2005 in honor of the late Austin O. Hooey (1922–2004). Her father, William Hooey, earned his degree in chemical engineering in 1912. Both deeply valued higher education and Cornell University.

Award winners for fall 2018 are Dana Thornlow and Andrew Shah. 

Dana from the Alabi group and Andrew from the Joo group, have made substantial impacts in both their research and professional service, contributing seminal breakthroughs and achievements that we anticipate will garner them fame for years to come. Learn all about these impacts at the Hooey award seminar on December 3 at 9:00 AM in room 255, Olin Hall.
