The winner of the 2017 Henkel Award for Outstanding Graduate Research in Polymer Chemistry is John W. Colson. He earned the Ph.D. in 2015 at Cornell University with Prof. William Dichtel for preparation of two-dimensional covalent organic framework polymers interfaced with single layer graphene and application of the polymers with graphene sheets as materials for optoelectronic devices. After postdoctoral research at the University of Chicago with Profs. Matthew Tirrell and Paul Nealey, Dr. Colson now works at ClostraBio, Inc., Chicago, IL.
