Priestley Named Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar
Rodney D. Priestley, Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering, has been named a 2014 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar. This program of the Dreyfus Foundation supports the research and teaching careers of talented young faculty in the chemical sciences through an unrestricted research grant of $75,000. Institutions are limited to only one nomination annually; a total of 15 awards were made in 2014. Nominees are selected for awards based on their scholarly research achievements as independent faculty members, as assessed by distinguished faculty in the chemical sciences who act as the Foundation's reviewers. The five-year Dreyfus award will support Priestley’s work on “Understanding the Combined Roles of Size, Interfaces, and Processing on the Properties of Amorphous Polymers”.
