2013 Kevin Nangoi

Kevin Nangoi won an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. His research advisor is Professor James Kakalios and his research focuses on the electrical properties of novel mixed phase amorphous silicon and germanium nanocrystalline (abbreviated as nc-Ge/a-Si:H) thin films. Kevin's recent project was investigating the conductivity hysteresis behavior observed on nc-Ge/a-Si:H thin films. He plans to use the money to cover his undergraduate tuition. Kevin is originally from Indonesia.

2014 Jared Matzke

Jared won an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He works with Professor David Thomas in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Biophysics. They use site-directed fluorescent probes to investigate the structure of myosin, a motor protein essential for many cellular and physiological phenomena such as muscle contraction, cellular motility, and cell division. Jared will use the award to fund summer coursework. He is originally from Woodbury, Minnesota.

Nguyen,Quynh_Franklin_2014.JPG

2014 Quynh Nguyen

Quynh won an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship, which he will aid him with tuition. Originally from Vietnam, he now works with Prof. Jeremy Mans on Rapid calibration for the Forward Calorimeters of the LHC’s CMS detector at 13TeV, in preparation for the LHC's new runs after its upgrade in 2015. This summer he will intern at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, working on simulation code to model neutrino beam target and devices in NuMI and LBNE lines under Dr. Alberto Marchionni, and will also attend the U.S Particle Accelerator School for training in beam physics and accelerator technology.
