This year, the Computational Science Research Center (CSRC) gave out 8 S-STEM Scholarships to exceptional masters and Ph.D. students.  Out the 8 students, the physics department is proud to announce that 4 of them are working with faculty in the physics department.  The physics department congratulates these outstanding graduate students on the award.

This scholarship is funded through the National Science Foundation (NSF).   This National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded scholarship program, referred to by the acronym Graduate S-STEM (for scholarships in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), will provide scholarships of $10,000/yr for two years, to supplement their teaching or research assistantships.  

The Scholarships for Graduate Student Participation in Computational Science and Engineering Research program is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation and managed by SDSU’s Computational Science Research Center.

All four winners conduct (or will be conducting) research through the CSRC wih their specialization in physics.  William Spinella and Omair Zubairi work on Numerical Astrophysics and General Relativity with Professor Fridolin Weber.  Priscilla Kelly a new incoming Master’s Student will be conducting her research with SDSU’s Physics departments newest faculty Dr. Kuznetsova in the field of Computational Optics and Photonics.  Uyen Hoang also a new incoming Ph.D. student will be working with Professor Usha Sinha (Physics Dept. Chair) in the field of Medical Physics and Image Informatics.
