We are very pleased to announce that at the May 4th, 2011 Faculty Meeting, Dr. Christopher Nomura, Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry, was named the College’s Exemplary Researcher for 2011-12. This College-level award recognizes a successful, currently active researcher with exemplary research activity, publication record and graduate/undergraduate student mentorship program. The nomination process this year allowed for nominations from different categories: Outstanding Career Achievement, Mid-Career Achievement and Early Career Achievement – for which Dr. Nomura was nominated.
This award, which is made annually, provides a $5,000 research account that can roll over for three years. Dr. Nomura will present a campus-wide research seminar highlighting his work as the first seminar in the Adaptive Peaks Series during the 2011-12 academic year. At that time, he will be presented with a plaque recognizing this achievement, as well as a reception in his honor.
Congratulations to Dr. Christopher T. Nomura on this well-deserved honor!
