Texas A&M-Kingsville chemistry professor named Fellow twice in 2020

Posted on

KINGSVILLE (November 24, 2020) — Dr. Jingbo Louise Liu, chemistry professor at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, recently was selected as a Fellow of her second and third professional societies.

 

In October, both Vebleo and the International Association of Advanced Materials (IAAM) elected her a Fellow of their respective organizations. Vebleo recognizes veritable leadership in engineering organizations and is a leading global scientific organization working to encourage researchers and scientists. IAAM is the world’s largest material science association whose core mission is the advancement of materials to global excellence.

 

In 2018, Liu was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society, the oldest English Language society in the world whose charter recognizes the general advancement of chemical science.

 

“These three organizations have one thing in common,” Liu said. “They offer a think tank and data repository for global research and education forum to induce development in the fields of chemical science, advanced materials, chemical engineering and technology to find solutions to the pressing issues of the world. Working forward with this aim, the organizations solicit goals. It is a singular honor to be invited and elected to Fellow status.

 

“Further, it is a humbling experience and a recognition that high caliber research and leadership in chemical and material science can be accomplished by faculty at Texas A&M-Kingsville. I take great pleasure in my students and collaborators who have assisted me in being able to make contributions to the advancement of materials science and engineering.”

 

For Liu, serving as a Fellow comes with great responsibility to continue to seek knowledge and empower students.

 

“It is often thought that faculty in non-Ph.D. granting programs do not have the rigor to compete or conduct leading-edge research,” she said. “These awards are an affirmation that the impossible is achievable within our department, college and university. It also is an example to young women that they too can compete and conduct serious science and once they reach a threshold continuum, they also will be recipients of quantum of success. They too can push this society towards a sustainable future in the energy-food-water nexus and beyond.”
