Amy Betz, assistant professor of mechanical and nuclear engineering at Kansas State University, has been named recipient of the 2017 American Society of Mechanical Engineers International Conference on Nanochannels, Microchannels and Minichannels Outstanding Leadership Award.

This honor recognizes a person whose service within the conference is exemplary, contributing significantly to its lasting success. Nominations are limited to professionals who have been involved with conference activities such as fundraising and student engagement for at least three years.

Betz was instrumental in the development of the Multiphase Microfluidics Laboratory at K-State, where her ongoing research involves investigation of multiphase heat and mass transport processes at the microscale. She has received funding from the National Science Foundation, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Electrical Power Affiliates Program.

She is a past recipient of the K-State Mentoring Fellowship and was the 2016 recipient of the K-State Office for the Advancement of Women in Science Recognition Award for her efforts to enrich the lives of girls and women in STEM disciplines.
