Three Assistant Professors Named 2021-22 UCLA Hellman Fellows
Three UCLA Samueli School of Engineering assistant professors have been selected as the UCLA Society of Hellman Fellows — Jun Chen of bioengineering, Artur Davoyan of mechanical and aerospace engineering and Carissa Eisler of chemical and biomolecular engineering.
The campus-wide program was established by the Hellman Family Foundation to provide support and encouragement for the research of promising assistant professors who show capacity for great distinction in their work.
Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Davoyan explores how light and materials interact at the nanoscale, with a focus on applications in space propulsion, energy harvesting and communications technologies.
Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Eisler advances the fundamental understanding of light-material interactions at the nanoscale, focusing on transformative optoelectronic devices for solar energy, lighting and computation.
