Joel Harris has won the 2019 Eastern Analytical Symposium Award for Outstanding Achievements in the Fields of Analytical Chemistry. The award was presented at this year’s EAS Meeting in Princeton, NJ in November. It honors Joel’s innovative and diverse contributions in multiple fields of analytical chemistry. Joel is the 2nd U of U recipient of this award; J. Calvin Giddings won the award 31 years ago in 1988.
"He and his students have advanced new concepts in photothermal spectroscopy, methods to analyze multidimensional spectroscopic data, Raman Spectroscopy of transient species and interfaces, and quantitative analysis of interfacial molecular populations by imaging and counting individual fluorescent molecules." - Eastern Analytical Symposium
