Shahani earns two professional society awards

MSE is delighted to announce that Assistant Professor Ashwin Shahani is the recent recipient of two exciting professional society awards: the 2022 ASM Bradley Stoughton Award for Young Teachers and the 2023 TMS Frontiers of Materials Award.

The Bradley Stoughton Award was established by ASM, International in 1952. It recognizes and fosters excellence in the teaching of materials science, materials engineering, design, and processing to encourage young teachers in this field. The award is open to any teacher of materials science, materials engineering, design, processing and related fields, under the age of 35. Only one award is given annually. Bradley Stoughton (1873-1959) was President of ASM in 1942. His distinguished career included teaching and administrative positions at MIT, Columbia University and Lehigh University, where he served as Head of the Department of Metallurgy and Dean of Engineering for 35 years.

Shahani's award citation reads:“For creativity and extraordinary effort in teaching undergraduate and graduate students, for providing innovative programming in materials science and engineering to underrepresented youth.”

The award will be officially presented at the ASM, International annual meeting in September 2022.

In addition, Shahani's TMS symposium proposal, “Intermetallic Alloys at the Edge of Complexity: Structural and Kinetic Aspects,” was cited as "impressive" and ultimately selected by the Frontiers of Materials Award Selection Subcommittee to be held at the TMS 2023 Annual Meeting & Exhibition next March in San Diego. 

Congratulations on both honors, Ashwin!
