Five recipients have been named by L’Oréal USA for the 2017 For Women In Science Fellowship. The honor provides female scientists “at a critical stage in their careers with $60,000 grants to advance their postdoctoral research.” According to the press release, this is the fourteenth year for the fellowship program.

Ritu Raman, Ph.D. (NY D ’12), is a postdoctoral fellow in mechanical and biomedical engineering at MIT and one of the 2017 recipients. She earned her bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Cornell University and her Ph.D. in engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Raman’s research focuses on the design of new smart materials that dynamically respond and adapt to their environment.
