Navrotsky comes full circle with opening of new ASU center
National Academy of Sciences member Alexandra Navrotsky (holding sign in photo) has returned to ASU to the lead the Navrotsky Eyring Center for Materials of the Universe. Her job is to oversee interdisciplinary explorations of newly discovered materials, including those found elsewhere in our solar system. That research thrust will enhance materials science and engineering pursuits aimed at developing new detectors and spacecraft materials needed to enable discoveries beyond our planet. Navrotsky rejoins ASU as a professor in the Fulton Schools, as well as the School of Molecular Sciences and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
