Kudos to the winners and honorable mention of the 2021 AMS-MAA-SIAM Frank and Brennie Morgan Prize for Outstanding Research in Mathematics by an Undergraduate Student! Ashwin Sah and Noah Kravitz are 2019 Goldwater Scholars! Congratulations and best wishes!

Ashwin Sah and Mehtaab Sawhney, both currently graduate mathematics students at MIT, will receive the 2021 AMS-MAA-SIAM Frank and Brennie Morgan Prize for Outstanding Research in Mathematics by an Undergraduate Student. Previously, they received Honorable Mention for the Morgan Prize for their joint work with David Stoner.

The prize committee notes, “Working alongside one another, Sah and Sawhney settled longstanding conjectures and improved results by established mathematicians. The research of Sah and Sawhney is both deep and broad, tackling questions at the very forefront of current research, yet extending across the entire gamut of modern combinatorics, with significant contributions to extremal graph theory, graph limits, additive combinatorics, Ramsey theory, algebraic combinatorics, combinatorial geometry, random graphs and random matrix theory. They have demonstrated a significant amount of ingenuity, originality and technical ability, resulting in a research record, which is extremely rare for undergraduate students.”

Noah Kravitz, doctoral student at Princeton, will receive Honorable Mention for his undergraduate research at Yale University. Read more https://buff.ly/2TxIqFM

Kudos to RIT 2020 Goldwater Scholar Emily Mahoney on the Fulbright Canada-Mitacs Globalink Program Fellowship!

Emily Mahoney, a 4th-year Chemistry major in the RIT College of Science was awarded a prestigious Fulbright Canada-Mitacs Globalink Program Fellowship for the summer of 2020. This summer internship gives U.S. undergraduate students the opportunity to assist on advanced research projects in Canada in the areas of science, engineering, math and social sciences.

After spending her fall 2019 semester studying abroad at the University of Oxford in England, Emily was interested in gaining additional international experience, this time in a research capacity. Through the Fulbright Canada-Mitacs award, Emily was assigned to assist with research at the University of British Columbia under the direction of Dr. Shyh-Dar Li in the area of utilizing nanoparticles for genome editing. While Emily would have been working on the synthesis of the nanoparticles and the drug delivery system itself, the program was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Fulbright Canada-Mitacs program is open for applicants each year in September. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen, have a competitive GPA and have at least one semester of undergraduate study left after the summer program takes place.

Kudos and best wishes to 2019 Goldwater Scholar Matthew DiBiase!

#ScholarHighlight • Congratulations to 2LT Matthew DiBiase for earning the XH407 Advanced Critical Thought Award!

Born and raised in Sanibel, FL, Matt was a chemical engineering major. At West Point, Matt spent his time in catalyst materials research with the objective of reducing the Army's greenhouse gas emissions. With the goal of integrating renewable energy into the Army, Matt worked with The U.S. Army Research Laboratory and West Point - The U.S. Military Academy on several projects to include the synthesis of fuel cell and lithium ion battery materials to enhance renewable energy technology. Matt earned a Barry Goldwater Scholarship Foundation Scholarship for his research.

Outside of his studies, Matt created the USMA Mock Trial Team. He spearheaded recruitment of new members, and led a team with no experience to be competitive alongside the top teams in the country.

Upon graduation, Matt will commission as a signal corps officer. He hopes to use his unique blend of legal, communication, and research skills to become an Army policy leader, propelling energy diversification.

Looking ahead to the 2021 Goldwater Scholarship competition and the impact of COVID-19 on research experiences, the application, and more. Kudos to 2020 Goldwater Scholar Jea Ramsammy Adams and Amherst!

When Jea Ramsammy Adams '21 applied for the Barry Goldwater Scholarship Foundation fellowship, she had plenty of in-the-lab research experience to talk about in her application. What if this summer's constraints are keeping you from gaining similar experience? Goldwater has offered this up: "research encompasses all the steps that create and disseminate new knowledge."

Kudos to 2020 Goldwater Scholar Max Bjorni! Santa Clara University junior Max Bjorni ’21, a double major in neuroscience and biology, is one of this year’s 396 Goldwater Scholars, and will receive a $7,500 scholarship to help fund his undergraduate education.
Established by Congress in 1986, the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation recognizes the nation’s top college sophomores and juniors who intend to pursue research careers in the natural sciences, engineering, and mathematics.
“I am truly honored to receive a Barry Goldwater Scholarship, and am eager to demonstrate my potential as a scientist,” Bjorni says. “It feels great to know that others view my research experiences at Santa Clara University as promising indicators of the future impact I can have.”
Bjorni credits much of his development in research to his work with Lindsay Halladay, assistant professor of psychology. Since his first quarter at Santa Clara, he says the Halladay lab has provided experiences that are essential to his future career, including learning advanced lab techniques, troubleshooting experiments, and presenting at professional research conferences. Working alongside Halladay as a Gerald and Sally DeNardo Research Scholar, Bjorni has realized his love of research and his desire to pursue it as a profession.
Bjorni also attributes much of his academic success to Santa Clara University’s smaller class sizes, which allow students more interaction with professors.
“I've been able to develop more meaningful relationships with my professors than I otherwise would have if I was sitting in a lecture hall with hundreds of other students,” says Bjorni. “So many of the professors I've had truly care about the intellectual and professional development of their students. They are phenomenal teachers.”
After graduation next year, Bjorni intends to pursue a Ph.D. in neuroscience, to research the biological mechanisms that underlie neurological disorders such as chronic neuropathic pain. He also hopes to teach a range of introductory and advanced neuroscience and biology courses at the university level.

We had a fantastic Goldwater Scholar get-together in San Francisco on July 13th! We ate at Dumpling Time, visited the Google Building, and ate some authentic sourdough. I'm so glad to be a part of this incredible community.
