Grad Student Camila Saez Cabezas Receives Florence Terry Griswold Scholarship
Graduate Student Camila Saez Cabezas has been awarded the Florence Terry Griswold Scholarship by the Pan American Round Tables of Texas (PARTT).
The annual scholarship, named in honor of the founder of the Pan American Round Tables, assists a female Latin American pursuing graduate studies in a state-supported university in Texas.
Saez Cabezas, a first-year Ph.D. student supervised by associate professor Delia Milliron, is working on the assembly of porous inorganic colloidal networks to create tunable and dynamic nanocrystal materials with enhanced electrochromic and ion transport properties for various applications, including a new “smart window” coating that can respond to weather conditions and selectively control the amount of heat and light passing through. The new material could have a major impact on energy efficiency and lead to big cost savings for commercial buildings and homeowners.
PARTT is a state-level, nonprofit woman’s organization established in 1916, its purpose is to acquaint members with the language, geography, history, literature, arts, culture, and customs of the republics of the Western Hemisphere, with the objective to foster mutual understanding, knowledge, and friendship among the peoples of the Western Hemisphere.
