The École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) awarded an honorary doctorate to Professor Emily Carter, founding director of Princeton's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, in recognition of her fundamental research in physical chemistry and its applications to developing better materials.
Emily Carter, founding director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton, talks about why she decided to devote the rest of her career to energy research. Laying out her strategic vision for the Andlinger Center, Carter says that Princeton's track record for interdisciplinary work puts it in a unique position to solve the complex energy problems that society faces.
Emily Carter, a Princeton professor of engineering and applied mathematics, and eminent physical chemist, has been appointed the founding director of the University's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment.
Young scientists flocked to Princeton University this summer for a primer on the science of combustion, a key field of research for developing alternative fuels and the engines that will burn them.
Princeton engineers have made a breakthrough in an 80-year-old quandary in quantum physics, paving the way for the development of new materials that could make electronic devices smaller and cars more energy efficient.
Emily Carter, Arthur W. Marks ’19 Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Applied and Computational Mathematics and director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, speaks about "New Ideas for Green Energy Solutions."

In a separate honor, Carter and fellow Princeton engineers Pablo Debenedetti and Marlan Scully were elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the nation's most prestigious society spanning the sciences and humanities.
Princeton faculty members Emily Carter and William Russel will be honored by the American Chemical Society this spring.
From the June 5, 2006, Princeton Weekly Bulletin Emily Carter wrestles with a world so tiny that if you were to hold it in your hand you could not feel it or see it. Yet the type of work she does, as a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, has the potential for large-scale transformations. “In contrast to traditional mechanical engineering, which tends to focus on the macroscopic world, Emily’s interest is more in the microscopic world, which is a new trend that w
