Congratulations to PhD candidate Suhas Eswarappa Prameela who was recently awarded the Engaged Scholar Graduate Student Award from the JHU Center for Social Concern. Suhas works with PI Prof. Tim Weihs (JHU) in the Metals CMRG.
The Engaged Scholar Graduate Student Award is given to a Homewood-affiliated graduate student whose dedication to community engagement, through teaching, community-based program development, and/or research has enriched the undergraduate student experience and established meaningful community partnerships.
Suhas was nominated for this award by people from different departments across campus including three faculty from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering: Prof. Tim Weihs, Prof. Evan Ma and Prof. Patricia McGuiggan.
“I am very grateful for the wonderful support from my adviser (Prof. Tim Weihs) as well other faculty in the department. The ability to inspire, articulate complex scientific concepts and engage young minds with open questions provides me a great opportunity for learning and appreciating science from different perspectives. Their encouragement towards teaching and mentoring undergraduate students at Hopkins as benefitted me immensely.”
