Graduate student Eun Bin Go (Tang group) has been awarded a Pauley Fellowship by the UCLA College of Letters and Sciences, Division of Physical Sciences.
The Edwin W. Pauley Fellowship is a two-year fellowship program designed to provide fellowship support to beginning graduate students with outstanding records and promise of scholarly achievement. Recipients recieve a $15,000 stipend during years one and four.
Go is a first-year chemistry Ph.D. student in Professor Yi Tang’s laboratory. In his nomination letter Tang wrote “Eun Bin has been working in my lab for three months and it is already very clear that she is an enthusiastic young scientist with great promise for research and teaching in the chemical sciences.”
Go graduated from Harvey Mudd College in 2015 with Distinction and Chemistry Departmental Honors. As an undergraduate student, she had a highly productive undergraduate research career. She completed two independent research projects as a research assistant with Prof. David Vosburg. The first project was in organic synthesis inspired by natural products and the second was an organometallic chemistry experiment for teaching in upper-division chemistry laboratory courses, publishing both works as the first author prior to starting her graduate studies at UCLA. In 2015, Go was featured in an article on the Harvey Mudd College News website.
Her academic accomplishments have also been recognized with the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, a research award from the Claremont Colleges Consortium, two distinct undergraduate research fellowships, and two awards from the American Chemical Society Division of Organic Chemistry as an undergraduate student.
