University of Texas at Dallas professor wins national honor

Abstract:
A nanotechnologist and University of Texas at Dallas chemistry professor has received a huge honor for working with minuscule technology.

Ray Baughman, the Robert A. Welch Distinguished Chair in Chemistry and director of the Alan G. MacDiarmid NanoTech Institute at UTD, will join another Texan and 63 other new members elected to the National Academy of Engineering, the organization will announce today.

Rebecca Richards-Kortum, chair of the bioengineering department and a professor at Rice University in Houston, is the other Texan honored.

"The election of Dr. Ray Baughman to the NAE isn't surprising," UTD President David E. Daniel said in a written statement. "He is one of the foremost figures in his field. The fundamental science and engineering being done in Dr. Baughman's labs will develop highly useful technologies."
