Congratulations to HEMI Fellows Anthony Shoji Hall, Michael Shields, and Daniel Viete who have been selected as three of 33 early-career faculty members to receive a 2019 Johns Hopkins Catalyst Award. Professors Hall, Shields, and Viete are assistant professors in the Department of Materials Sciences & Engineering, the Department of Civil Engineering, and the Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences, respectively.
The Catalyst Award program offers winners the means and opportunities to pursue a wide range of projects, from disease treatments to environmental studies. Recipients of Catalyst Awards are selected based on their accomplishments to date, creativity and originality, and academic impact. Each awardee will receive a $75,000 grant to support their work over the next year, as well as the opportunity to participate in mentoring sessions and other events.

The program is open to any full-time faculty member appointed to a tenure-track position at least three and no more than 10 years ago. This year, more than 90 senior faculty members from across the university served on the committee that selected the awardees from a pool of 115 submissions. Recipients are celebrated at an event each fall.
Congratulations again to our HEMI awardees!
