Showcasing University of Illinois research in
nanophotonics, and nanomaterials/nanomanufacturing,
leading to cross-campus and industry collaborations
Professor Jennifer Lewis received a BS with honors from the University of Illinois (1986) and an Sc.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1991) and joined the faculty of UIUC in fall 1990. She now holds the titles of professor of materials science and engineering and of chemical engineering, and is a faculty affiliate with the Beckman Institute. Her honors include: NSF Presidential Faculty Fellow Award (1994), Burnett Teaching Award (1994), Schlumberger Foundation Award (1995), Xerox Award for Faculty Research (1996 & 2001), Allied Signal Foundation Awards (1998, 1999), selection to the Frontiers of Engineering Symposium sponsored by the National Academy of Engineering (2000), University Scholar, University of Illinois (2002), Langmuir Lecture Award from the American Chemical Society (2009), and Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2012). Prof. Lewis and Glen Kirby, PhD student, won the 2003 Brunauer Award from the American Ceramic Society for their paper "Rheological Property Evolution in Concentrated Cement-Polyelectrolyte Suspensions" published in the December 2002 issue of the Journal of the American Ceramic Society.
