Prof. John Morris has been named the Dr. A.C. Lilly Jr. Faculty Fellow in Nanoscience by the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors. The Fellowship was established in the College of Science through an endowment by A.C. Lilly Jr, a Virginia Tech alumnus. He established the Faculty Fellowship Endowment in Nanoscience to provide support for an outstanding faculty member in the field of nanoscience. The Fellowship appointment is for three years. Dr. Morris and his group are working to develop nanoscience approaches that can be used to build new catalysts and to provide insight to how small-scale materials affect the environment. More information about his research can be found on his group's website. Congratulations Prof. Morris!
