Distinguished Research in Science, Engineering, and Mathematics Award
Joan T. Schmelz

Dr. Schmelz, whose research interests lie in astrophysics, uses diagnostic measurements derived from X-ray and EUV emission lines to characterize physical conditions—such as temperature, density, emission measure, and elemental composition—of coronal active regions. She has developed a strong and federally supported program in astrophysics at the U of M, has published over 50 scientific papers, and has received many grants, mainly from NASA and the National Science Foundation. The College of Arts and Sciences recognized her excellent work by awarding Dr. Schmelz the Dunavant Professorship and the College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Research Award in 2004.
