Expanded TMS Awards Program Boosts Early Careers

ELECTRONIC 0 MAGNETIC 0 PHOTONIC MATERIALS DIVISION 0 Saryu Fensin 0 0 Shih-kang Lin Lin is an assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at National Cheng Kung Many professional awards focus almost exclusively on past accomplishments. Investing in future possibilities, by contrast, is the intent of the growing collection of recognition opportunities for young professionals made possible by the TMS Foundation. In the last year alone, TMS has tripled the original size of its Young Leader Professional Development Award program, added a second prestigious Early Career Faculty Fellowship, and developed a new collaboration in support of international scholarship. Advancing the professional growth of TMS's young members is also a key element of a new TMS Foundation signature program that is currently under discussion by society leadership. Hani Henein, 2014 TMS president, said these initiatives build on an organizational culture that has long been welcoming and supportive of early career professionals. TMS is an extremely memberfocused organization, which means as a young professional, you have many avenues to present he said. Early in your career, though, there are a number of considerations that you have to address as you become involved with a professional society and begin to develop your network of colleagues. Through the work of the TMS Foundation, TMS has made it a priority to 'smooth the way,' so that young scientists and engineers can take full advantage of what being a member of TMS means, and look to The following pages introduce this year's group of TMS members who have been recognized for their potential as future leaders within the society and the professions it serves. While they were formally honored at the TMS 2014 Annual Meeting and Exhibition (TMS2014) in February, please make a point of including them in your network of colleagues in the months to come as they embark on this stage of their professional journeys. - Saryu Fensin Fensin is a postdoctoral researcher at Los Alamos National Laboratory, having earned a degree in chemistry with a minor in physics at Mount Holyoke College and a Ph.D. in materials engineering at the University of California, Davis. She has been actively involved with several TMS committees for the past three years, and has served as secretary of the Young Professionals Committee. Fensin has held leadership posts at Mount Holyoke and Los Alamos as well, and is the recipient of more than a dozen scholarships and awards. The generous support of the TMS Foundation allows me to continue TMS is an incredible avenue to network with other young professional peers, as well as seasoned professionals. This award provides me with additional networking opportunities that will not only provide me additional insights into the inner workings of TMS, but also help me learn about other Yan Li Li joined Intel Corporation in 2006 as a senior package failure analysis engineer. She received her B.S. and M.S degrees in physics from Peking University, Beijing, China, and her Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from Northwestern University. Li is an active TMS member, having served as conference organizer and session chair of the Electronic Packaging and Interconnection Materials Committee, among other roles. This award opens a door for me. The invitation to attend the TMS Board of Directors meeting will be very helpful to Li said. The invitation to attend the EMPMD Council meeting will also help me prepare for becoming a future leader University in Taiwan. He received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering at National Tsing Hua University, and has worked as a and Industrial Research (ISIR) of Osaka University in Japan, a visiting scholar at the Pennsylvania State University, and a research associate at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. His research focuses on materials thermodynamics, phase equilibria, and phase transformation using experimental skills as well as computational approaches. Lin said the Young Leader award encourages him to be further dedicated to materials research, education, and service with and through TMS. With this prestigious honor from TMS at this early stage of my career, I am highly motivated to pursue more interactions with Fan-Yi Ouyang Ouyang adds another honor to a long list of achievements, having been recently recognized with awards for excellence in research and teaching at National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan, where she has been an assistant professor in the Department of Engineering and System Science since August 2010.

Tonks And Then There Were Two: The TMS Early Career Faculty Fellow Award Since its inception in 2007, the Early Career Faculty Fellow (ECFF) program has evolved into one of the most competitive awards that TMS offers. To broaden access to this unique professional development opportunity, the TMS Foundation earmarked support for a second ECFF award in 2014. Aimed at individuals employed in the tenure-track position of assistant professor or equivalent, the ECFF serves the dual purposes of recognizing professional accomplishment while also providing to contribute to TMS activities, as well as their own professional development. Award requirements include attending two TMS annual meetings, making a brief presentation at the Young Leader Tutorial Luncheon the award, and organizing a symposium during the second year. Daniel Santiago Gianola TMS has always been a great home for materials researchers like myself looking to make a longproud to be a TMS member. Im truly appreciative of this recognition, which gives me a renewed sense of Assistant Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Pennsylvania (Penn), and one of the 2014 ECFF award winners. Gianola teaches undergraduate and graduate courses, while also directing a research group focused on understanding, modeling and predicting the mechanical response of advanced materials at reduced length scales. materials science and engineering has never been higher. Coupled with an incredibly bright and motivated student body at Penn, it is an exciting time to be a researcher and advising of research projects, by mentoring of budding scientists and engineers, and through numerous outreach Gianolas Young Leader Tutorial Luncheon Lecture at TMS2014 was Fostering International Interactions and His discussion examined strategies to defeat parochial views to research and education, mechanisms for engagement in international activities, and opportunities for student exchange and promoting global citizenship in explained that the topic is strongly rooted in his own experience, saying, Ive been very privileged to have been exposed to formative opportunities for international research collaborations during most periods of my career. These have shaped my perspective on research and what Back to Basics: Putting the E Back into MSE was the Young Leader Tutorial Luncheon Lecture offered by the second 2014 ECFF winner, Michele Viola Manuel. An assistant professor at the University of Florida, Manuel leads the universitys Materials Design and Prototyping Laboratory, focusing on research efforts dedicated to the design of advanced materials from high performance light metal alloys to self-healing alloy composites. She notes that her experiences as both an educator and researcher Michele Viola Manuel inMfoartmereiadlshesrcileencctuerdeetsoipginc.is a new concept, and it is exciting to be part of shaping this of Florida perspective and our own ideas of integrating design from throughout the many disciplines supported by the university. Hopefully, this offered attendees some points and examples of how a university can approach this topic in a way that they are not accustomed to Manuel will be chairing the Magnesium Technology Symposium at TMS2015 and is looking forward to the additional leadership opportunities within TMS that have been made possible by the ECFF award. I am honored said Manuel. Important milestones in a successful career often depend on people who see the promise in you that you sometimes cant see in yourself. This award is a reminder that its not just you alone who achieves these goals, but a whole community of people who help get you there.
