“I will be working with a mentoring Professor to research the feasibility of a Rankine cycle power plant that will run off of the waste heat of traditional power plants, through the utilization of organic working fluids with relatively low boiling points.” The UAS7 Internships, according to their website, “s a new option for students interested in hands-on research opportunities at a German University of Applied Sciences.”
“Here at Union College I have been involved in an ongoing computer-aided Finite Element study to assess fracture healing benefits for a novel pelvis fracture plate option.
The next step is to move from the computer simulation to an actual spine-pelvis simulator. The Spine Biomechanics laboratory at the University of Ulm owns a state-of-the-art spine simulator that can be manipulated to assess various fracture healing parameters.”
“This project is one that I’ve worked with a professor at the University of Geneva to design and propose to the Fulbright Committee. I’m looking to analyze the raw materials, energy use, health hazards and environmental pollution associated with the bio-based and petroleum-based production of these acids. The hope (officially known as the final goal) is to develop a model that will help the companies looking into investing into new bio-based technologies.”
“The purpose of the program (Gillman Scholarship) is to provide financial aid so that everyone can have a chance to study abroad. Post my term abroad I will give a presentation of my time abroad as well as educate people in the AOP program regarding the Gilman scholarship.I will be giving advice on how to apply and the benefits of going abroad. I will also serve as a mentor for the program should anyone need help applying.”
The program is to inspire students to explore the community and make an effective change.
