Shelley L. Anna was selected as an Honorable Mention of a Carnegie Science Award in the category of Emerging Female Scientist. This award will be celebrated during the 16th Annual Carnegie Science Awards, to be held May 11, 2012.
Professor Shelley Anna was appointed the Russell V. Trader Career Faculty Fellow effective November 1, 2011, for two years. Faculty Career Development Chairs are term professorships of one to three years that recognize outstanding young faculty in the college and give them the freedom to engage in creative ventures that are not readily supported by traditional granting agencies. Through their work, these young educators raise the level of performance of all around them and bring honor to the institution.
Note: Russell Trader attended Carnegie Institute of Technology c. 1920 and studied Machine Construction in the College of Industries, the forerunner of Mechanical Engineering. Upon the death of his wife, Rachael, in 2000, Carnegie Mellon University received funds to establish the Russell V. Trader Career Faculty Fund in Mechanical Engineering as a lasting memorial to Russell Trader. The principal of this fund is used to provide faculty support through research, fellowships and equipment funding.
