Dr. Fateme Rezaei, an associate professor of chemical and biochemical engineering, is a recipient of a 2021 Rising Star Award from the American Chemical Society’s Women Chemists Committee.

This award recognizes exceptional early- to mid-career women chemists across all areas of chemistry on a national level. The award was established in 2011 to promote retention of women in science. The winners receive a stipend to cover expenses for an award symposium to highlight their work at the society’s virtual national meeting in April.

The American Chemical Society is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress. With more than 150,000 members, ACS is the world’s largest scientific society and a global leader in providing access to chemistry-related research through its multiple databases, peer-reviewed journals and scientific conferences.

Rezaei, who earned a Ph.D. at Monash University, Australia, joined S&T’s faculty in  2014. Her research interests include:

  • Developing novel materials and processes for energy-efficient separation, purification, storage, and sensing applications
  • Shaping engineering and additive manufacturing of nanoporous materials for separation and catalysis.
