Wednesday, October 19, 2022, 11:00 am — Videoconference / Virtual Event (TBA)

The Chemistry Division at Brookhaven National Laboratory and Brookhaven Women in Science (BWIS) will recognize the recipients of the inaugural 2021 Joanna Fowler Award in the Chemical and Biochemical Sciences at a virtual award ceremony. The Fowler Award recognizes an outstanding early career (graduate student or postdoctoral) woman scientist who has advanced the chemical or biochemical sciences through research conducted at, or in collaboration, with Brookhaven National Laboratory. The awards session will honor the 2021 recipients as well as the legacy of Joanna Fowler, a distinguished former BNL scientist.

The three 2021 recipients are Maila Danielis, Diana Lutz, and Tiffany Victor Lovelace.

Maila Danielis developed innovative methods for the preparation of highly active Pd/CeO2 heterogeneous catalysts for methane conversion during her Ph.D. research at the Polytechnic Department of the University of Udine (Italy). She collaborated with Brookhaven scientists in the Catalysis Reactivity and Structure group, combining in situ and ex situ characterization techniques to understand the nature of the improved Pd/CeO2 activity, including studies at NSLS-II. Maila is currently a researcher at the Polytechnic Department of the University of Udine.

Diana Lutz investigated the synthesis and advanced characterization of novel materials and electrolytes for next-generation Li-ion batteries while completing a Ph.D. as a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow at Stony Brook University. Her thesis research was conducted jointly in the BNL Interdisciplinary Sciences Department. Diana's research utilized BNL's CFN and NSLS-II user facilities for operando studies of battery materials. Diana is currently a Battery Scientist at Ion Storage System.
Tiffany Victor-Lovelace applied X-ray bioimaging to study biological systems at cellular and subcellular levels while she was an NSLS-II Directors Postdoctoral Fellow at BNL. She studied nutrient distribution in plant-microbe systems, investigated the role of copper in neurodegenerative disease, and imaged proteins in cells and tissues in 3D using X-ray sensitive tags. Her research utilized advanced X-ray microscopy capabilities at NSLS-II. Tiffany is currently an Assistant Scientist in the Imaging and Microscopy Group at NSLS-II.
