ECE graduate student Soumya Krishnamoorthy has been awarded a Dean’s Dissertation Fellowship for the fall semester 2006. Only 30 students were selected to receive these fellowships from over one hundred nominees, based on a rigorous, university-wide nomination and selection process.

Soumya has been a top academic performer in the ECE department. She has contributed significant research findings in biosensor device development on thin films and nanostructures.

The fellowship, which includes a $10,000 stipend, health insurance allowance, and tuition remission for the fall semester, is intended to reward outstanding students and help them devote their full attention to the quality of their dissertation.

Another ECE student, Jie Qin, was also nominated for the fellowship, but was not among the final 30 students selected to receive the award.

Soumya is advised by ECE Professor Agis Iliadis.
