MIT's Technology Review magazine has recognized MSE alumnus Dr. Ranjan Dash (Ph.D. 2006, advisor: Professor Yury Gogotsi) as one of its TR35 of 2009. This prestigious group of 35 innovators under the age of 35 represent the cutting-edge in science and technology.
Dash was recognized for his role as co-founder of Y-Carbon, Inc., a nanotechnology start-up company whose "core mission is to develop and promote an innovative method of making novel nanostructured carbon materials with precisely defined structure, porosity, and surface chemistry."
Recognized as the doctoral student deemed to have the most promise in enhancing Drexel's reputation in the future in the Mathematical Sciences and Engineering upon graduation in 2006, Dash is the first Drexel student to complete a Ph.D. and M.B.A. simultaneously.
The news of Dash's selection as part of the TR35 also appears on AZoNano.com and mydigitalfc.com.
