Nanocenter member Reza Ghodssi, Nima Ghalichechian's faculty advisor, nominated the Ph.D. student for the award. Dr. Ghodssi says Nima is "in the top five percent of all students I have worked with. He is a prime example of a highly motivated, bright, ambitious, team oriented and creative person who is evolving to become the best in his field."

Nima has designed, modeled and tested the world's first rotary micro-motor supported on micro ball bearings. As part of this work, he has also designed a creative MEMS fabrication process flow as well as a comprehensive material characterization experiment to test the electrical properties of the low-k dielectric materials used in this micro-machine.

This is not the first time Ghalichechian has been recognized. In 2006 he received the prestigious 2006 AVS Graduate Research Award. He was the co-recipient of the 2004 MEMS and NEMS (MN) Technical Group Best Graduate Student Paper Award. Also, in 2006 he gave one of the 24 oral presentations at one of the most prestigious MEMS conferences in the world, the Solid-State Sensor, Actuator, and Microsystems Workshop.
