Professor Mallik recently was honored with this award for faculty excellence in service. She has contributed immeasurably to the department, college, university, and broader community with extensive service activities. Her commitment to building community in her department is evident in her committee work, which has included serving multiple times on key departmental committees and in her dedication as a mentor to graduate students and junior faculty members. She has been an invaluable member of many college-and university-wide committees, including the CLAS Educational Policy and Curriculum Committee, Graduate College Council, Faculty Council, and Faculty Senate. She is a passionate advocate for public engagement, the promotion of science, and has been a leader in efforts to bring engaging science programs to K-12 students and their families. She is active in the high energy physics community, leading the mentoring of young U.S. newcomers to CERN (the European organization for nuclear research), and engaging in outreach to enhance the role of women in physics.
