Dr. Abhishek Srivastava, Research Associate of ECE, has won the 2014 Michi Nakata Prize for Early Career Achievements, "for his innovative and pioneering contributions to high-performance liquid crystal electro-optic devices using ferroelectric liquid crystals and the nanotechnology of photoalignment. The prolific research activity in his early stage is believed to promise his future career."

The awards were presented during the 25th International Liquid Crystal Conference held on 29 June - 4 July 2014 in Dublin, Ireland.
 
The Michi Nakata Prize was established by The International Liquid Crystal Society (ILCS) in 2008 to recognize a discovery or singular outstanding achievement by an early career scholar in the liquid crystal field. The prize is funded by the Michi Nakata Foundation, which was created by her parents, Kyoshi and Yasuko Nakata, and friends, after Michi’s untimely death in 2006.
