University of Virginia chemical engineering Ph.D. student Anukriti Shrestha has won a UVA All-University Graduate Teaching Award.

Shrestha was honored along with other winners and nominees from across UVA by the Office of the Provost and Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs. Since 1990, the provost’s office has presented University-wide Graduate Teaching Awards, highlighting and honoring the University’s graduate students for commitment and excellence in undergraduate instruction.

“It is a well-deserved honor for Anu’s outstanding work with ChemE students as a TA, co-instructor for Materials and Energy Balances, the department’s foundational course, and mentor to undergraduates,” said William S. Epling, department chair and Alice M. and Guy A. Wilson Professor of Chemical Engineering.

Shrestha works in assistant professor Chris Paolucci’s computational catalysis research group.
