Three cheers to Amanda Fried Koh, PhD.
Amanda completed her studies and was conferred her doctorate in Chemical Engineering, specializing in interfacial chemistry, from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y. She studied for her undergraduate degree and received her Bachelor of Science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
This stellar star’s list of achievements is stunning and is a byproduct of the best public school system around — the Brooklyn one. She is an alumnus of PS 222, Andries Hudde Middle School, and Midwood High School.
She is also a receipient of the Girl Scout Gold award, and while in high school, was chosen as a national semi-finalist in the Intel Science Talent Search, the nation’s most prestigious pre-college science competition.
She is still doing her borough proud and currently lives with her husband David and two cats in Baltimore, Md., working at the Army Research Laboratory developing stretchable materials for use in soft robotics.
Standing O wishes Dr. Koh a long and illustrious career.
