Former chemical engineering PhD graduate student Gaurav (Gino) Giri received the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) Student Reseach Paper Prize. Gino's work was evaluated by a panel of four judges with diverse specialities from external institutions; among nominated works of "superb quality and breadth," his was chosen for this honor. The award, which consists of a $1000 prize, will be presented at the 2015 CHESS Users’ Meeting on June 9-10, 2015, at the Physical Sciences Building on the Cornell University campus. There, Gino will present a 20-minute overview on his paper, “One-dimensional self-confinement promotes polymorph selection in large-area organic semiconductor thin films.”

Congratulations, Gino!
