Katie Hardin Receives Dr. Billy Richardson Award for Young NBC Research
Battelle Research Scientist Katie (DeMers) Hardin has been named the 2015 recipient of the Dr. Billy Richardson Young NBC Researcher Award. Hardin is the second Battelle researcher to have received this award since 2013.
Additionally, as an elected member of the Emerging Scientists and Engineering Council (ESEC), Hardin organized an event known as the Battelle Innovation Gathering (BIG) -- designed to empower emerging scientists to champion their own ideas for internal R&D and, ultimately, external funding.
Hardin’s reach and desire to mentor and foster science education extends out into the community where she works with schools, judges science fairs and participates in Women in Science and Engineering events
