Please join BSAC in congratulating Shiekh Zia Uddin of the Javey group on being awarded the 2022 Materials Research Society (MRS) Graduate Student Gold Award.
The MRS Award recognizes "students of exceptional ability who show promise for significant future achievement in materials research." Uddin works in the areas of photophysics and optoelectronics of low dimensional semiconductors, with a focus on the photophysics of low-dimensional excitonic materials. He was honored for research that demonstrated that two-dimensional monolayer semiconductors can be defective yet perfectly bright. The award, which comes with comes with a $400 prize, will be presented at the 2022 MRS Fall Meeting in November.
