The grant honors junior scholars with an outstanding independent body of scholarship, who are deeply committed to education
The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation has announced their 2018 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars for 2018. The thirteen young faculty represent a broad range of contemporary research in the chemical sciences; Professor Kang-Kuen Ni won for her work in ultracold molecules for chemistry and physics.
But Ni's recent innovations go beyond the lab. She designed a new curriculum for undergraduates to access the complicated subject of quantum chemistry. And, she demonstrates a strong commitment to mentorship and K-12 outreach, opening her lab to provide hands-on experience for the next generation of chemists.
A Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award is a well-deserved affirmation of Ni's efforts to accelerate research and education in chemistry.
