On 5 June 2014 I received the Academia Sinica Junior Research Investigator Award. I was given this award in recognition of three important publications which I worked on while affiliated with a Taiwanese institution.
From 18 - 22 November 2013 we organized the major dust conference: The Life Cycle of Dust in the Universe: Observations, Theory and Laboratory Experiments. This conference is part of sequence of international astrophysical dust meetings that take place once every five years.
I gave a talk at the meeting on Mass Loss Return from Stars to Galaxies held at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore. A webcast of the talk is available through the STScI webcast archive.
Academia Sinica has awarded me a 2012 Career Development Award to support research on The Life Cycle of Dust in Galaxies. The award is for 5 years.
