Spring 2019 Hooey Award winners: Lakshmi Nathan and Paul Carlson

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.

The Spring 2019 Hooey Award winners are Paul Carlson (Lucks Lab) and Lakshmi Nathan (Daniel Lab). 

Both Paul and Lakshmi have made substantial contributions to both professional service and research. They will tell us about their impacts in a TED-style talk at the Hooey award seminar next Monday May 6, 2019.
