Jena Named “Outstanding Scientist”

Puru Jena, Ph.D., distinguished professor of physics, has been named one of three Virginia’s Outstanding Scientists of 2015.

Jena was selected for the honor for his significant contributions to the theoretical understanding of nanomaterials with potential applications in clean energy, medicine and information technology.

“I am delighted and honored that I was chosen as one of this year’s Virginia’s Outstanding Scientists,” Jena said. “This would not have been possible without the help of my colleagues, students and postdoctoral fellows I have had the privilege to work with over the past 35 years at Virginia Commonwealth University. I am grateful to them as well as to VCU for providing the atmosphere and support needed for creative work.”
