This year, two faculty members will receive Michigan Tech Research Award.
Ravindra Pandey, professor and chair of the physics department, was selected for his long and exemplary track record of high-impact research in the theory of materials.
Mathematical Sciences Professor Shuanglin Zhang was chosen for his groundbreaking work in statistical genetics, which has been instrumental in raising the profile of his department nationally and boosting it into the top 100 in the US in terms of research funding.
“I’d like to congratulate both Ravi and Shuanglin,” said Vice President for Research David Reed. “It’s really remarkable to present two Research Awards in a single year, and in this case, it’s fully justified.”
