Cutting-edge nanoscience researcher honored


The latest class of Fellows of the American Physical Society includes Zuzanna Siwy, a senior investigator in Nanostructures for Electrical Energy Storage (NEES), an Energy Research Frontier Center funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and headed by University of Maryland Prof. Gary Rubloff.

Siwy, a professor at the University of California, Irvine, was named a fellow "for her innovative use of nanopores in the development of biosensors and nanofluidic ionic circuits." Siwy’s research on nanopores for electronic circuits was a critical contribution to the NEES project, which has just finished its fourth year of operation.

Election to APS Fellow status requires "exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise; e.g., outstanding physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education. Fellowship is a distinct honor signifying recognition by one's professional peers," the society’s website says.

Each nomination is evaluated by the Fellowship committee of the appropriate APS division, topical group or forum and is approved by the APS council. Siwy was one of eight honorees by the society’s Division of Biological Physics in 2013.
