Emdadi Takes 3rd In Dean's Thesis Competition

Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE) graduate student Laleh Emdadi, advised by Professor Kyu Yong Choi, took third place in the 2010 Dean's Master’s Student Research Award Competition. She was recognized for her thesis, "Synthesis of Monodisperse PMMA Particles at Low Temperature by Dispersion Polymerization in a Nonpolar Hydrocarbon Solvent: Experiments and Theoretical Modeling."

To give top Clark School doctoral student researchers special recognition that will be valuable in launching their careers, and to show all students the importance of high quality engineering research, Clark School Dean and Farvardin Professor Darryll Pines created the Dean's Master’s Student Research Award Competition in 2009. Students submit their work through competitions at the department level, with winners from each advancing to the Dean's finals.

Earlier this year, Emdadi won third place in the 2010 ResearchFest for her poster "Dispersion Polymerization at Low Temperature: A Route to Encapsulate Biologically-Active Materials."
