NIST Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships

On November 19th (Tuesday), there will be a set of presentations regarding the NIST Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship program, featuring a research presentation by Joanna Moody (’14) on the work she did at NIST-Gaithersburg this summer. Presentations are as follows:

Prof. Nathan Lundblad, Physics: Overview of Research Activities at NIST

Joanna Moody, ’14: Zeta potential and particle size of cements

Joseph Tomaras, OEG: What you need to know to prepare a strong NIST Fellowship application

This will be held in New Commons Room 201 from noon – 1:00, with plenty of time for Q&A. Students & faculty are welcome to bring lunch up from Commons. Faculty are asked to RSVP in advance so we have a rough count of how many lunches we’ll be paying for.

Though NIST fellowships have eligibility restrictions (students must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents; must have declared at least one STEM major; and must not be graduating seniors), all students interested in Joanna’s research presentation and/or considering science careers are welcome to attend.
