B. Reeja-Jayan

B. Reeja-Jayan is an Associate Professor in Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. She also holds courtesy appointments in Materials Science and Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Electrical & Computer Engineering. Her multidisciplinary lab explores ways by which electromagnetic fields can synthesize materials hitherto unavailable to conventional synthesis routes. These low temperature processed materials directly grow on flexible, lightweight substrates, enabling structurally integrated energy and sensing. Jayan is a recipient of the 2018 National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award, 2017 Army Research Office (ARO) Young Investigator Award, 2016 Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) Young Investigator Award, the George Tallman Ladd Research Award, and Pittsburgh Magazine’s 40 Under 40 Award.
