Elizabeth Lee wins first place at AIChE Conference in Electronics and Photonics Division


Elizabeth M. Y. Lee, a 6th year Chemical Engineering PhD student enrolled in the Research Communication Laboratory program at the MIT Center for Excitonics, won first place last week in the Electronics and Photonics Division Graduate Student Research Award at the 2017 AIChE (American Institute of Chemical Engineers) Annual National Meeting in Minneapolis, MN.  The purpose of the award is to encourage graduate students to excel and to identify future leaders in the electronics and photonics field.  Liza presented “Energetic Disorder in Quantum Dot Solids,” revealing a new method she developed for creating phenomenological energy transport models for quantum dot solids.  Her approach unifies theory, experiment, and numerical simulations, bridging the gap between the varying length and time scales typically observed in spectroscopy experiments.
