Texas A&M University chemist David C. Powers has been recognized as a 2020 Sloan Research Fellow by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

Powers, who joined the Texas A&M Department of Chemistry as an assistant professor in fall 2015, leads a research program that combines the tools of synthetic chemistry to address major unsolved challenges related to sustainable chemical systems, energy conversion and human health. He is one of 126 scientific researchers selected from more than 60 institutions across the U.S. and Canada for the prestigious fellowship, which has been presented annually since 1955 to honor early career scholars whose achievements mark them as among the most promising researchers in their fields.
