Monday, August 12, 2019

Department of Chemical Engineering graduate student, Tanvi Sheth, Helgeson Lab, has been awarded a Mitsubishi Chemical Fellowship from the Mitsubishi Chemical Center for Advanced Materials for the period 2019-22.

“The fellowship competition this year was impressive and the applicants highly accomplished,” said Scott Shell, Professor and Vice Chair of Graduate Affairs. “The faculty were particularly impressed by the research progress and ingenuity of each of the candidates. I regret that we don't have more fellowships to award.”

The Mitsubishi Chemical Center for Advanced Materials (MC-CAM) is an interdisciplinary materials research center that commenced operations in May 2001 at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The Center enables a research partnership between the Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (MCC) and the greater materials science community housed in UCSB's College of Engineering and physical science departments.

"Wishing Tanvi and all of our graduate students continued creativity, discovery, and success in their doctoral studies,” said Professor Shell.

Melissa Walker is the Communications Coordinator for the Department of Chemical Engineering.
