She is the recipient of an NSF CAREER Award, MIT Infinite Kilometer Postdoctoral Award, an MIT/Bruker Symposium Award, a German Academic Exchange (DAAD) Graduate Research Scholarship, an Electrochemical Society Herbert H. Uhlig Summer Fellowship, and a Humboldt University (Berlin) L. Euler Student Fellowship.
