Melissa Becker ’17, now a master’s student in the lab of Assistant Professor Wyatt Tenhaeff, received a Student Achievement Award at Digital Rochester’s 2017 GREAT Awards ceremony last Tuesday.

Becker was nominated for the award by Tenhaeff to recognize her work on making polymer-ceramic mosaics that could make the production of solid state lithium batteries more industrially feasible. This was initiated as a senior design project.

Becker “represented the University and our department very well, and I am very happy for her,” says Tenhaeff, who attended the ceremony.
