Dillon Recognized as American Ceramic Society Fellow

Shen Dillon is named a fellow of the American Ceramic Society.

June 21, 2022 - Shen Dillon, professor of materials science and engineering, has been named to the 2022 Class of Fellows of the American Ceramic Society (ACerS). This designation recognizes ACerS members who have distinguished themselves through outstanding contributions to the ceramic arts or sciences, broad and productive scholarship in ceramic science and technology, conspicuous achievement in ceramic industry or by outstanding service to the society.

Dillon’s research focuses on understanding the key role played by inorganic interfacial structure-property relationships in affecting the performance of systems in extreme environments. Much of his recent work relates to developing novel in situ characterization techniques that can be applied to understanding the dynamic properties of materials and their interfaces.

Explained Beth Dickey, ACerS president, in the society’s announcement: “The 2022 Class of Fellows represents a diverse group of exceptional leaders in the ceramics and glass community. Their professional achievements and service to ACerS have expanded the educational, scientific, technical and/or industrial frontiers of our profession. I commend this class of fellows for their outstanding achievements.”

Dillon is one of 19 scientists who will be honored as new fellows at the society’s Annual Meeting during the Materials Science and Technology Conference this October in Pittsburgh, PA.
