Ryan Comes Awarded Presitigious National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship

Ryan Comes, a PhD student in Engineering Physics, has been selected to receive a 2010 National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship. Sponsored by the Department of Defense, the fellowship is highly competitive, with the 2010 pool of applications exceeding 2,600. The three-year fellowship offers awardees full tuition, stipend, and provides awardees greater latitude with their research so they may pursue their interests within the broadest scope.

Advised by Stu Wolf, Mr. Comes studies multiferroic oxides for use in magnetic quantum cellular automata, a magnetic alternative to electronic logic systems in use today.

Congratulations Ryan on this outstanding accomplishment!
