Dr Sarbajit Banerjee, an affiliated faculty member in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, USA, has been awarded the Rosenhain Medal and Prize by the Institute of Materials, Minerals, and Mining (IOM3), UK, for his research in new materials design.


Dr Sarbajit Banerjee

The award was instituted in 1951 to honour the memory of the German-born Australian metallurgist Walter Rosenhain.

Banerjee, who is a professor in the Department of Chemistry at Texas A&M, received the honour in recognition of distinguished achievement in any branch of materials science by a researcher under the age of 40. It is the highest young researcher award presented by the organisation.

The award recognises the accomplishments of Banerjee’s research group related to phase transformations in complex oxides, Powder Metallurgy of light metals and the ability to bring together theory, measurement and applications.

Banerjee received his undergraduate education at St. Stephen’s College, Delhi, India, and his doctorate at Stony Brook University, New York, USA. Before starting at Texas A&M University he was an Assistant and Associate Professor at the University at Buffalo and The State University of New York.

His research specialties include solid-state and materials chemistry, nanoscale materials, electronic structure, chemical imaging and X-ray spectroscopy, thin films and coatings, light metals and nanocomposites.
