Congratulations to Professor Yu Zou who has received the 2021 TMS Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division (MPMD) Young Leaders Professional Development Award. This award honours young, dynamic and committed members who are active participants in the TMS community.
“In 2011, as a master’s student, I attended my first TMS meeting in San Diego, California. Over the past decade, TMS has been my community, where I met international leaders in my research field, attended student mixers and career events, and discussed with peers in poster or oral sessions”, Said Yu. “I enjoyed and learned a lot from TMS. Last year, I brought two of my PhD students to the TMS annual meeting and introduced them to this dynamic atmosphere. I am truly grateful for this recognition, especially because it comes from my professional society home. I look forward to further engagement in TMS and MPMD activities that are enabled by this award.”
