Dr. Amod Ogale received the plaque for Graffin Lecturer Award at the 2016 World Carbon Conference. The award was presented to Dr. Ogale by Dr. Rodney Taylor, Chairman of the American Carbon Society.
Each year the American Carbon Society selects a lecturer who has made distinguished contributions to carbon science and engineering. The lecture is available to North American colleges, universities, and industry by arrangement with the lecturer. The award is named after George D. Graffin, a former employee of Asbury Graphite Mills, Inc., who had an excellent understanding of carbon and graphite technology and therefore a profound influence on the industry.
