Dianne Xiao receives DOE Early Career Research Award

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]June 11, 2021[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Originally published by the University of Washington Department of Chemistry.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Assistant Professor Dianne Xiao has received an award from the Department of Energy’s Early Career Research Program, an effort “designed to bolster the nation’s scientific workforce by providing support to exceptional researchers during the crucial early career years, when many scientists do their most formative work.” Prof. Xiao’s research program seeks to discover next generation materials that address unmet needs in clean energy, catalysis, and environmental remediation. Her group studies a wide range of material types, from metal–organic frameworks to supramolecular cages and their polymer hybrids. A common theme is the presence of well-defined internal...
