3 students named Goldwater Scholars for excelling at undergraduate research
Winners of the Goldwater Scholarships are selected from among the highest-achieving undergraduates in the nation who are making notable contributions to research in science and engineering. Two of the three new Goldwater Scholars at ASU are Fulton Schools students Madeleine Howell and Maeve Kennedy. Both began their research endeavors in the labs of Fulton Schools faculty members in the School of Biomedical and Health Systems Engineering. Howell, a chemistry major who is minoring in materials science and engineering and mathematics, worked in the lab of Assistant Professor Barbara Smith. Kennedy, a chemical engineering major and Fulton Schools Grand Challenge Scholar got her introduction to research in the Bioinspired Complex Adaptive Systems Laboratory directed by Associate Professor Vincent Pizziconi.
