Julie Schoenung Receives Chime Bells Award

Posted on: October 10, 2012

UC Davis professor Julie M. Schoenung received a Chime Bells Award for her contributions to the Hubei Province of China. Schoenung promoted the foundation of collaborative platforms based on thermal and physical deposition techniques of ceramics coatings between UC Davis and Wuhan University of Technology. The award recognizes her efforts to instruct and recommend Chinese scholars for high quality publications in international journals.

A professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering & Materials Science at UC Davis, Schoenung received her undergraduate degree from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign before attending MIT for her master's and doctorate. Her research interests include nanostructured/ultrafine grained materials and green engineering design. Schoenung is a Max Planck fellow, and an AT&T industrial ecology faculty fellow.

The Hubei Province, in the central part of the People’s Republic of China, began the Chime Bells Award in 1994 to honor foreign experts who work with the province. Schoenung is the only woman among this year’s twelve recipients.
