Yifei Mo – an assistant professor in the University of Maryland (UMD) Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) – was recently awarded a 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award. Of the 100+ nominations, only 17 were selected this year, and Mo was the only UMD recipient. He will receive $45,000 in funding over the next three years, which will help bolster his research activities in engineered materials design.

This competitive award is presented by 3M to recognize outstanding young faculty who excel in STEM research, academic leadership, and experience as a means of helping them achieve tenure. According to 3M, “the creativity, scientific rigor, and commitment to advancing the state of science and engineering was clearly evident across the proposals.”
