Congratulations to the new MAS Presidential Awards winners!/in News Item /by webbymas
MAS Presidential Awards
The Presidential Science Award goes to John Panitz, High-Field Consultants, for his contributions to the founding and advancing developments of the atom probe which unlocked the ability to perform atomic scale chemical analysis.
The Presidential Service Award goes to Kerry Siebein, NIST, for outstanding volunteer service to the society over a sustained period of time. Kerry’s latest role with MAS was as the AReS Chair (2016-2021) and coordinated tour speakers with AReS and she kept us engaged when we could not meet in person.
The K. F. J. Heinrich Award goes to Jordan Hachtel, ORNL, for his distinguished technical contributions to microanalysis by a society member within 15 years of their terminal degree.
The Peter Duncumb Award for Excellence in Microanalysis recognizes outstanding achievement in the field of microanalysis through technical accomplishment, leadership, and educational and professional activities. It is awarded annually to an individual currently active in his or her career through nomination by the MAS membership and selection by MAS Council. This year’s awardee is Dr. Colin MacRae from CSIRO. Colin has led a research team that pioneered developments in light element analysis, soft x-ray speciation and the analysis and quantification of cathodoluminescence.
