    Laurel Ohm Awarded Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship

    Laurel Ohm has been awarded a University of Minnesota Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship for 2019-20. Laurel's research interests lie in analysis of PDEs describing fluid-structure interaction and her thesis advisors are Yoichiro Mori and Daniel Spirn. The Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship (DDF) gives the University's most accomplished PhD candidates an opportunity to devote full-time effort to an outstanding research project by providing time to finalize and write a dissertation during the fellowship year. 

  • Jasper Weinburd

    Jasper Weinburd Awarded NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship

    Jasper Weinburd has been awarded an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship. He will be receiving his Ph.D. degree this year under the direction of Prof. Arnd Scheel. His NSF postdoctoral research will study the collective behavior of swarms of foraging locusts. Classifying patterns of collective behavior provides insight into the biological mechanisms driving individual insects. Understanding this link may inspire efficient, low-cost methods for locust control and crop-loss mitigation. He is headed to Harvey Mudd College to work with Prof.
