The 2020 CSUPERB annual symposium took place from Jan 16-18 in Santa Clara, California. Our very own Prof. Vas Narayanaswami was selected as the winner of the very prestigious and competitive CSUPERB 2020 Faculty Research Award, and she gave an excellent talk which was much appreciated by all the attendees. It is a great honor to have this award come to Long Beach this year!
In addition to Prof. Vas' recognition, two undergraduate students from our Department were recognized: Kyla Anderson from Vas lab and Jude Khatib from Bhandari lab were awarded prestigious Howell-CSUPERB Fellowships!
We also had two students (Angela Bui from Tian lab and Anh Nguyen from Bhandari lab) among the 8 finalists for the Glenn Nagel Undergraduate Research award.
Overall, CSULB had excellent participation at this symposium, with 42 faculty and students representing at least three colleges - CNSM, CHHS, and COE), the majority of which were from the CNSM (Chemistry, Biology, and Physics).
