Graduate student Duygu Gerceker won the “best poster” award for her poster “Alkane dehydrogenation on supported Pt-based catalysts.” She presented her work at the fall 2017 meeting of the American Vacuum Society’s Prairie Chapter meeting in Milwaukee. The AVS is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the science and technology of vacuum, materials, surfaces, interfaces, thin films, and plasmas. The Prairie Chapter is one of 15 AVS area chapters and includes Illinois, Indiana, and eastern Wisconsin.

Gerceker is co-advised by Jim Dumesic, the Ernest Micek Distinguished Chair in chemical and biological engineering, and Manos Mavrikakis, Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor and Paul A. Elfers Professor, and Chair of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering.
