Alicia wins 2022 Hooey Award
Alicia receives Hooey Award for graduate excellence and commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion
Congratulations to Alicia Aquino who is the recipient of an Austin Hooey Graduate Research Excellence Award. The Hooey Award is the highest honor that CBE bestows on graduate students, and recognizes those students who have demonstrated the highest research quality and productivity, and who have demonstrated a track record of service to their research group, department, and community. The Hooey award is given to two graduate students each semester who are selected by a group of their peers from the Chemical Engineering Graduate Student Association (CHEGSA). Tommy was recognized for her pioneering research in the area of cell-free synthetic glycobiology, her leadership within CBE, and her many efforts in the area of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Prior DLRG Hooey Award winners include Tommy Jaroentomeechai (2020), Aravind Natarajan (2019), Jason Boock (2014), Adam Fisher (2008), and Lydia Contreras (2007).
