ChE Professor Bryan Boudouris receives American Physical Society's 2021 John H. Dillon Medal
Dr. Bryan Boudouris, a Professor of Chemical Engineering and of Chemistry (by Courtesy) at Purdue University, has been selected to receive the American Physical Society’s 2021 John H. Dillon Medal.
Dr. Boudouris was selected for his “fundamental insights connecting polymer structure with charge transport in free radical conducting polymers, organic electronics, and functional block copolymers.”
“The John H. Dillon Medal is one of the major prizes in the polymers community, and the top prize for young researchers in the field of polymers,” explained Dr. Sangtae Kim, Distinguished Professor and the Jay and Cynthia Ihlenfeld Head of the Davidson School of Chemical Engineering at Purdue.
Established in 1983 by The American Physical Society and the Division of Polymer Physics (DPOLY), the John H. Dillon Medal recognizes the outstanding research accomplishments by young polymer physicists who have demonstrated exceptional research promise early in their careers. In 1997, sponsorship of the medal was assumed by Elsevier, Oxford, UK., publishers of the journal, Polymer.
“Being awarded the Dillon Medal from the American Physical Society (APS) is extremely humbling, especially given the previous recipients of this award and because of how supportive the Polymer Physics community has been since the start of my career,” said Dr. Boudouris. “I cannot thank the APS and the Division of Polymer Physics enough. Importantly, this award recognizes the ingenuity, intelligence, and drive that our undergraduate student, graduate student, postdoctoral researcher, and visiting scientist team members have placed in advancing the fundamentals of polymer physics. Their efforts, combined with the leadership and alumni of the Davidson School of Chemical Engineering, have allowed our work to make significant impact in the community, and we are grateful that the Purdue ecosystem has positioned us to make giant leaps in this arena.”
Dr. Boudouris joined Purdue Chemical Engineering in 2011 as an assistant professor. He received his B.S. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2004, and his PhD from the University of Minnesota in 2009. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley from 2009-2011. He leads a research group composed of chemical engineering and chemistry undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers.
