The École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) awarded an honorary doctorate to Professor Emily Carter, founding director of Princeton’s Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, in recognition of her fundamental research in physical chemistry and its applications to developing better materials.

EPFL, regarded as one of the top European universities in engineering, awarded its docteur honoris causa to Carter at its graduation ceremony, Oct. 6, in Lausanne, Switzerland. Carter also delivered a talk, “Quantum Mechanical Evaluation of Energy Conversion Materials for Generating Electricity and Fuels,” at EPFL on Oct. 5.
