L’Oreal fellowship winner praises her mentors

29th May 2009

L’Oreal’s winner of its Fellowship for Women in Science has voiced gratitude to her mentors.

Tiffany Santos from the Argonne National Laboratory has been honoured with the award ? which is now in its sixth year and aims to support females in the industry who are researching complex topics.

She examined a range of transition metal oxides with the aim to understand how materials interact with each other when brought together at an atomic level.

This should then lead to materials being designed for the next generation of electronic devices to meet certain global challenges.

From starting out as an undergraduate to studying for her postgraduate qualification, Ms Santos remarked her mentors have been the strongest influence on her work.

She said: “Their enthusiasm for science is contagious and I thrive on learning from them on a daily basis.

“The thrill of discovery and sharing the excitement with mentors and colleagues make my job rewarding and fun.”

The programme was launched in 2003 and aims to raise the awareness of women’s contribution to science and to provide role models for younger generations.
