Emily Carter, founding director of Princeton University's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, has been awarded the 2014 Remsen Award by the American Chemical Society Maryland Section for outstanding achievement in chemistry. Carter is Princeton's Gerhard R. Andlinger Professor in Energy and the Environment and a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and applied and computational mathematics. The Remsen Award recognizes her work in pioneering the development of unique tools to study and design materials, most recently for sustainable energy from solar and fuel cells to fusion. The award was established in 1946 to commemorate the career of Ira Remsen, first professor of chemistry and second president of Johns Hopkins University.
