The Charles Mann Award for Applied Raman Spectroscopy will be presented to Karen Faulds on Tuesday, October 15, at the SciX 2019 conference in Palm Springs, California.

The Charles Mann Award for Applied Raman Spectroscopy will be presented to Karen Faulds on Tuesday, October 15, at the SciX 2019 conference in Palm Springs, California. Faulds is a professor in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, Scotland). She is also the head of Bionanotechnology and Analytical Chemistry at the university.

Faulds’s area of expertise is in the development of Raman and surface-enhanced Raman scattering for novel analytical detection strategies, and in particular, multiplexed bioanalytical applications. She has published more than 130 works and holds five patents. Her research group’s work has been recognized with the Nexxus Award (2009), the RSC Joseph Black Award (2013), and the Craver Award (2016). She was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (2012), a Fellow of the Society of Applied Spectroscopy (2017), and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (2018), and she he has given over 70 invited talks at national and international conferences located in Thailand, Japan, China, Russia, India, Canada, and the United States.

The Charles Mann Award for Applied Raman Spectroscopy is given to an individual who has demonstrated advancements at a conference presented by the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) in the field of applied Raman spectroscopy or has demonstrated dedication to the advancement of the Raman spectroscopy program at a conference presented by FACSS and the American Society for Testing and Materials Raman subcommittee.
