Judy Wu Receives NSF CAREER Award

Judy Wu, a computational quantum chemist at the University of Houston, earned a National Science Foundation CAREER award for her proposal suggesting that connecting the two could change the way chemists view hydrogen bonds and potentially guide experimental efforts in the design of advanced materials with novel properties, including gels, plastics and electronics.

The NSF CAREER award is given to promising junior faculty to kick-start their careers. Wu’s proposal will be funded at $585,012 over five years.
