(CMU.edu) Jyoti Katoch, assistant professor of physics at Carnegie Mellon University, has received a prestigious early career grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Katoch’s research focuses on understanding the properties of two-dimensional quantum materials.
Katoch is one of 73 scientists from across the nation to receive funding under the DOE’s Early Career Research Program. The program supports outstanding scientists early in their careers as they develop their individual research programs.
“Supporting our nation’s most talented and creative researchers in their early career years is crucial to building America’s scientific workforce and sustaining America’s culture of innovation. We congratulate these young researchers on their significant accomplishments to date and look forward to their achievements in the years ahead,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry.
