Dr. Peters wins Sujack Award

Dr. Peters wins Sujack Award

In 2012 the Sujack Family established the Sujack Family Faculty Research Excellence Awards in order to recognize faculty for their individual research and scholarship outside of the classroom. In order to assist faculty in conducting their research, support from these awards will provide for such costs as data acquisition, summer stipends and related travel expenses. This award helps faculty conduct the research which will enhance not only their scholarship, but also the Jesuit ideal of higher education and the greater Loyola University Chicago community.

Winners receive both a plaque or certificate and a monetary award at a ceremony in April of each year.  In addition, each faculty member’s home department receives a cash award to be used in support of activities that will enhance teaching and research at the department level.

Dr. Peter's research is supported by the NSF and focuses on subfactors, planar algebras, and principal graphs. More about her research can be found here.

Congratulations again to Dr. Peters!
