Congratulations to physics major Lauren Zundel, who has been awarded a DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship, administered through the Krell Institute. 

This is a full, four-year fellowship that she will use to pursue graduate research with Prof. Alejandro Manjavacas in our department. 

Lauren writes “I will be continuing the work I have done during my undergrad in describing the interactions between light and matter having dimensions smaller than its wavelength”.
