Three students from the Colorado School of Mines have received fellowships that will go toward the pursuit of their graduate thesis research.
The three fellows are Anna Baldwin and Kevin McCann, both candidates for doctorates in Nuclear Science and Engineering, and Timothy Schutt, a chemical engineering Ph.D candidate.
The research conducted by the students will take place in laboratories at the Department of Energy. There, they will have access to available expertise, resources and capabilities.
Baldwin will conduct her research in neutron scattering and instrumentation at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, McCann will work in heavy element radiochemistry at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and Schutt will be working in predictive materials science and chemistry at National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
Schutt will work under adviser C. Mark Maupin, a chemical and biological engineering assistant professor. Baldwin and McCann will be working under the supervision of chemistry assistant professor Jenifer Braley.
The periods for the awards range from three to 12 months.
