- Akash Arora, a chemical engineering graduate student co-advised by Frank Bates and Kevin Dorfman, was recently awarded the 2017 Richard D. Amelar and Arthur S. Lodge Fellowship for Outstanding Collaborative Research in Materials. Professor Timothy Lodge presented the award to Arora at a recent department seminar. The fellowship award is given annually to a graduate student from the Departments of Chemistry or Chemical Engineering and Materials Science.
Tim Lodge and Susanna Amelar Lodge established the fellowship in 2014 to encourage and recognize exceptional graduate students who have demonstrated a strong collaborative spirit and initiative to improve the academic community. In achieving their own personal and professional success, the Lodges drew inspiration from their fathers, both accomplished scientists. Tim is a Regents Professor in the Departments of Chemistry and of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science; Susanna completed her doctorate in chemistry at the University of Minnesota in 1990.
