Shudipto Dishari, assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, received the Emerging Innovator of the Year award at the 2020 NUtechVentures Innovator Celebration, held virtually on Nov. 2.

The award recognizes an individual, often a junior faculty member, for recent innovation contributions.

Dishari's research focuses on designing ion-conducting and light-harvesting polymers, exploring the nanoscale phenomena within polymeric thin films and membranes. Her work could help reduce the cost and improve the energy efficiency of hydrogen-based fuel cells. Other potential applications include energy conversion and storage device systems, such as lithium batteries, semi-conductors and biochemical systems.

The event also recognized inventors from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, including many from the College of Engineering, who are listed on U.S. issued patents in fiscal year 2019-2020.
