Debra Rolison will receive the 2012 Charles N Reilley award. Debra Rolison heads the Navy’s nanoarchitectural firm at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC, where her research focuses on multifunctional nanoarchitectures for rate-critical applications such as catalysis, energy storage and conversion, and sensors. With Bruce Dunn (UCLA), Jeffrey Long (NRL), and Henry White (University of Utah), she created 3D electrochemical energy storage, a new sub-discipline in electrochemistry. She received a B.S. in Chemistry from Florida Atlantic University (1975) and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (1980). She is a Fellow of the AAAS (2001), AWIS (2006), MRS (inaugural class, 2008) and received the 2011 ACS Award in the Chemistry of Materials.

Lane Baker, Indiana University, will receive the 2012 Young Investigator Award, presented annually by the Society for Electroanalytical Chemistry (SEAC). Lane Baker received his BS in Chemistry from Missouri State University in 1996. He completed graduate studies at Texas A&M University under the guidance of Prof. Richard M. Crooks, followed by postdoctoral positions at the Naval Research Laboratory with Dr. Lloyd J. Whitman and at the University of Florida, working with Prof. Charles R. Martin.

Since starting at Indiana University in 2006, Baker’s research has focused on development of new tools and techniques for measuring and manipulating ion currents at small length scales. He is the recipient of a NSF CAREER award, a Cottrell Scholar’s Award and The Society of Analytical Chemist’s of Pittsburgh Starter Grant.
