Thumbnail image for Emily Carter w Nancy Pelosi_color corrected.jpg Princeton Engineering’s Emily Carter appeared yesterday at a Capitol Hill news conference with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and U.S. Rep. Rush Holt to announce a new initiative that will highlight scientific research made possible by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (a k a the congressional economic stimulus package).Carter said that engineering and physical sciences had been on “starvation budgets” for basic research throughout her 25-year career, reports, and that “with one fell swoop, this bill… really has changed the tone among the whole scientific community."

You can hear Carter describe her work in computational modeling of materials for energy applications in this video of a workshop hosted by Princeton’s Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment.
