Aurelia Honerkamp-Smith awarded 2011 UW Graduate School Distinguished Dissertation Award

Congratulations to Dr. Aurelia Honerkamp-Smith, who has been awarded the 2011 UW Graduate School Distinguished Dissertation Award.  Aurelia earned her Ph.D. in 2010 in Professor Sarah Keller’s physical chemistry group. Her research centered on miscibility transitions within lipid membranes. Her work is broadly applicable because she performed the first systematic measurement of a dynamic critical exponent in any 2D system with conserved order parameter. Aurelia is now a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Cambridge.
